Repeat prescriptions can be requested in writing or online via the link at the top of this page.
We offer a secure system for online repeat medication ordering via SystmOnline but you must register in person with the surgery before using this service.
The surgery cannot deal with requests over the telephone. This policy is adhered to in order to minimise errors in prescribing.
If you require prescriptions to be sent to your home, please provide a stamped addressed envelope. We also operate a collections home service with local chemists. Ask at reception for more details.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and a notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
