new website for ordering prescriptions
To order prescriptions online click on the above link
Prescriptions can be ordered daily. Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be generated.
If you would like your prescription collected by the chemist please let the receptionist know and they will set your pharmacy preference on your medical record. Following this, each time you order your repeat prescription with the surgery, your order will be sent to the chemist of your choice.
Prescriptions may also be ordered by phone, fax, or in person by using the repeat-tear off slip or hand written request.
You can sign up for the online ordering system by speaking to a receptionist and filling out the necessary forms.
NB: Prescriptions are only taken over the telephone between 10:00 – 14:00. Except ever last Wednesday of each month from 13:00 - 15:30, due to staff training.
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.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
