Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made by using the right hand side of your original prescription. You can either drop your request into the prescription box in reception, post it to us, complete an eConsult form online or email us. Please allow two working days before collection and make allowances for weekends and public holidays, when we are unable to issue prescriptions. The surgery does not process hospital prescriptions.
Wherever possible, prescriptions will be sent to a pharmacy that you have nominated.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
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 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre payment certificate.
