Those patients who take tablets or medicine regularly will be given a repeat prescription order sheet. This means that their repeat medication is entered on the computer and makes our prescribing safer and more efficient.
When you wish to renew a prescription, please tick the items required on the order sheet and then put it in the box by the front entrance, or post it to the practice. If you would like us to post it back to you, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope.
You can email your request to us at [email protected]
For non-urgent requests – [email protected]
Alternatively, you can order online by following the link at the top of this page and completing a simple one-off registration.
For safety reasons, we cannot accept requests for prescriptions over the telephone.
Don’t Run Out
It is necessary to give us at least 2 working days notice and it helps to give us a few days’ notice. Don’t let yourself run out of medicine! If you need your medication early because you are going on holiday, please inform us. Simply write a short note on your request i.e. ‘need early for holidays’.
Collection And Delivery Service
If you are housebound, you may wish to talk to your local chemist as many of them will now pick up your prescription from our surgery and deliver the medication to your home.
Prescription 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.
Electroninc Prescribing Video
We are now live with electronic prescribing and able to send your prescriptions to a chemist of your choice electronically. This means you do not have to come in and pick up a paper copy of your prescription.
If you have not already nominated a chemist, please go and see your chosen chemist and they will help you get registered.
There is further information about electronic prescribing in our reception and at all the local chemists. Have a look at this You Tube video which gives a good explanation of how it works
