If agreed with your doctor, repeat prescriptions will be issued from the computerised record. Repeat prescriptions should be requested in writing using the computer record slip, by using our online facility, or by attending the surgery.
We request that you don't bring in lots of boxes as it is difficult for the reception staff to write these down when they are busy in the morning.
The reception staff however do try and help patients who have no one to help them at home and those who are not able to read & write English.
Repeat prescriptions are not normally issued over the telephone.
Please allow 48 hours before coming to collect your prescription excluding weekends and Bank holidays
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.
Prescription costs as of April 1 2014
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 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

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
