If you currently order these online please be aware our system has changed and you will need to re-register, please see homepage for further details
Please order repeat prescriptions on the printed request form provided at the chemist when you collect your medication. This can then be:
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. Patients new to the service will need to register first.
Please note we DO NOT accept telephone requests for prescription items (except for housebound patients)
Your repeat prescription will be ready for collection either at our Reception desk or at the local pharmacy of your choice after 3pm three working days after we receive this request. We are unable to process requests more quickly due to the volume of prescriptions we deal with on a daily basis.
As a patient it is your responsibility to make sure that you submit your request while you still have sufficient medication to last you because we are unable to provide prescriptions urgently, except in exceptional circumstances. If an urgent request for medication is made, you will need to fill in a urgent prescription request form and a clinician will decide whether this is necessary.
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 notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Electronic prescribing is now available.This service will change the way we send your prescriptions to the Pharmacy.
Once you have nominated a chosen Pharmacy we will electronically send the prescription to them.
Ordering your medications will not change, only the process of the Pharmacy obtaining the prescription from us.
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
Many very effective medications are available as ‘over the counter’ medications these include, painkillers and anti-inflammatory medications such as paracetamol and ibuprofen , antibiotics for conjunctivitis and medications for constipation.
Every year, millions of us visit our GP with minor health problems that our local pharmacist could resolve quickly and without an appointment.
Instead of booking and waiting for a GP appointment, you can visit your local pharmacist any time: just walk in.
All pharmacists are highly trained healthcare professionals they can recognise many common health complaints. They can give advice or, where appropriate, medicines that will help to clear up the problem. If your problem is more serious and needs the attention of a GP, your pharmacist will recognise this and advise you to see your GP.
The complaints your local pharmacist can advise and offer medication for include:
Please allow 3 working days (excluding Saturday & Sunday) for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
