Prescriptions

Did you know that you can order your repeat prescription online? If you are not already signed up for ‘Patient Services’, please contact a member of the reception team for further details.

You can request repeat prescriptions in three ways:
1. By post
2. Online
3. In person

Please submit your request prior to 10:30am and allow TWO FULL WORKING DAYS for your prescription to be processed and remember to take weekends and Bank Holidays into account. To reduce the risk of errors we are unable to accept requests over the telephone.

Requesting medication early: should you need to request your repeat prescription more than a week before it is due please add a note to advise why. We cannot process early requests without an explanation.

  • Hospital Prescriptions

NHS Prescriptions issued by hospitals are ONLY VALID in the hospital pharmacy. Requests for private prescriptions or NHS hospital prescriptions to be issued from the practice need to be individually assessed by the responsible doctor. This may result in a delay and could also lead to issuing of an alternative medication. Sometimes requests of this nature may need to be declined.

  • Unused Medications

Unused medicines kept at home can be a health risk and should be returned to a pharmacist. Please tell your local pharmacist or GP if you have stopped taking your medication. When ordering a repeat prescription please ensure that you only tick the medications on the form that you currently need, and ensure your pharmacist does not give you medication unless you have asked for them.

  • Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
