Did you know that you can access on-line services (including ordering medication) via the NHS APP? For more information visit https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-app/ Ordering medication this way is quick and efficient and will save you a trip to the Practice.
Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment.
Requests for prescriptions must be made in writing to reduce the risk of error.
We are unable to take orders or issue repeat prescriptions at weekends, public holidays or out of normal surgery hours.
Please allow at least 72 hours before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays.
Please give the exact drug names when ordering.
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.

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): £9.35
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
- 3-month PPC: £30.25
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.
