Prescriptions

When ordering a repeat prescription please help us to save valuable staff time and to process your repeat prescription quickly and correctly by:

  1. Using the repeat slip attached to your prescription every time you request a prescription
  2. Clearly TICK each item you require
  3. Place your repeat slip in the box provided at reception or in the porch – you do not have to hand it to the receptionist unless you have a query you wish to ask about.

Using this system saves us time and helps us to process your prescription quickly. A delay could occur if the repeat slip is not used.  Please allow 48 hours (two working days) before calling to collect your prescription.

Your medication will be reviewed periodically by your doctor.  Repeat prescriptions are not accepted by telephone due to the danger of error.

You may also:

  • Send in your request by post together with a stamped addressed envelope or
  • fill in the online form.
  • EPS (see below)

Your prescription may be sent to any local pharmacy participating Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) or a collection service.  Please speak to your pharmacy for further details.

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.
