All prescription requests must be made in writing.
You can order prescription online via the link at the top of this page.
Alternatively to order a repeat prescription, please visit the practice and post your repeat medication slip in the prescription request box in reception.
Please tick the item/s you require on the right hand side of your repeat medication slip. If you cannot find this slip, the right-hand side of your prescription can be reprinted by a member of our Reception team.
We do not take prescription requests over the phone
We request 2 working days to process repeat prescription requests. Your nominated pharmacy will then need adequate time to dispense your medication therefore we recommend that you allow 5-7 days from putting in your request to collecting your dispensed medication from your pharmacy. Requests for medication which are not on repeat may take longer than 2 working days to process as these have to be passed to the GP to action.
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.
