Prescriptions

Visit our prescriptions room where you can order a repeat prescription, register for electronic prescribing and more.

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescription forms are issued for prescribed drugs, which you require on a regular basis.

Please allow 2 working days before collecting your prescription.

In future you may wish to consider registering for our online services. The Online Services system remembers which medications you are on and makes requesting repeat prescriptions faster and easier.

How To Request Your Medication

Prescription requests can be made online, we also accept requests:

  • In writing (using your request slip- right hand side of the prescription)
  • By post

If you require the prescription to be posted back to you, then please supply a stamped addressed envelope.

Please note, we are not able to take prescription requests over the phone.

Electronic Prescription

We are an electronic prescription practice. Patients can request their medication through the methods above. Rather than collecting the prescription from the practice, it will be transferred electronically to your preferred pharmacy. You just go along to collect it from your pharmacy.

Read our electronic prescription patient information.

Medication Review

For safety you are advised to have regular reviews, if you are taking long-term medication.

We review any regular medication on a repeat prescription annually and wherever possible the doctor will do this without you having to attend the surgery. Please be advised that some medications require regular monitoring of blood or urine and you will be asked to attend for these tests to complete the medication review.

If you have been advised by the surgery that your medication review is due please use this form.

Alternatively, a message will also appear on your prescription when a medication review is due and you should then book an appointment with the doctor who is prescribing your medication. The doctor will then discuss the medication with you and agree a monitoring plan. This may require you to have blood and urine tests. For some medication the doctor will only need to talk to you or check blood pressure or breathing.

Batch Prescribing

This is a new method of prescribing which allows us to give you prescriptions for 6 months, please ask your doctor about this.

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.
