Patients on long-term medication will receive a “tear-off” slip with each prescription, listing the repeat medication. Please check the items carefully to ensure they are correct. When you need a repeat prescription you should return this slip to the surgery indicating the items you require. Please enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you wish your prescription to be posted to you (in which case allow at least one week). Requests can also be made by telephone, quoting the items required.
Alternatively you can now order online by following the link at the top of this page and completing a simple one-off registration.
Please note prescriptions will not be given to children under 16 years
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Please also ensure that at holiday times you arrange for your repeat prescription in ample time.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

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.
Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.65
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
- 3-month PPC: £31.25
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.
