Repeat Prescriptions

If you wish to request repeat medication, please visit our Prescriptions and Medicines Centre.

Alternatively, you can come in to the surgery and hand your repeat slip to reception.

You will need to allow two working days for your prescription to be processed. Bank holiday and weekend prescriptions will only be processed up to seven days before the prescription is due. If you require a prescription earlier than this, please attach a note to the repeat slip or add a comment to your online request and we will do our utmost to comply with your request.

Medication that you may have had before, but is not on a repeat prescription, will need to be reauthorised by your doctor. Please contact the practice and our administration team will be able to help arrange this for you.

Dispensary and Local Pharmacies

The surgery dispenses medicine to only those patients who live more than a mile from a pharmacy. We have an on site pharmacy that actions these requests on our behalf. If you have a genuine physical difficulty in collecting your prescriptions, please contact the practice who may be able to arrange delivery by a local pharmacist.

Many of the local pharmacies offer a repeat prescription service. Please Register for the Electronic Prescription Service to nominate a pharmacy of your choice.

Prescriptions Charges

Prescription charges apply at the rate set by the government and must be paid for when your medicines are collected. Proof of exemption from payment should be shown when signing the back of the prescription form.
