Once authorised by a doctor, medications that have been put onto repeat can be requested from the surgery without the need to see a doctor.
This can be done in person at the surgery (using your repeat slip or a form at the surgery), by post (if you enclose as stamped addressed envelope) or using the vision online service.
We are unable to accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone unless you are a registered housebound patient.
Routine Repeat Prescriptions
Please allow 72 hours for repeat prescription requests to be processed.
These must be made in person at the surgery.
Any queries, or when your medication comes up for its review date, the repeat prescription has to be referred to a doctor and therefore, there may be a delay in completing your prescription request.
Urgent Repeat Prescriptions
We will try our best to accommodate any urgent requests but, cannot guarantee that this will be possible, so please ensure you leave plenty of time for prescription requests to be processed.
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.
The current prescription charge is £8.05 (from 1st April 2014)
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs). To check if you fit the criteria for exemption speak to your local pharmacy for advcie. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication. 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.
If you are interested in a PPC then please speak to your local pharmacy for details.
Please allow 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
