Due to contamination risks from coronavirus, we will not be giving repeat prescriptions out in paper. If you have not already done so, you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy to receive your prescription. You can change pharmacies if you change your mind.
We have an online service which you can register for by ringing reception. All new patients are automatically registered for this service. You will be able to book appointments and request repeat medication as well as view some details of your medical records (if you have made this preference) with one login and password.
We do not accept requests by phone.
Please allow 72 hours (excluding Saturday/Sunday and bank holidays) for preparation and signature.
Collection services are offered by:
Electronic repeat/batch prescriptions - if you are on long term stable medication, you may be eligible for this service making it easy for you to pick up your prescription without having to request it from your GP for up to one year. Details in the leaflet below.

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.
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 prescription prepayment certificate. Please speak to your local pharmacy or contact the telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030 or use the online service below.
