If you take medication on a long-term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription as follows:
- Call in and ask at reception
- Order online (see below)
You will need to allow 48 hours for your prescription to be processed excluding bank holidays and weekends Prescriptions will only be processed up to seven days before the prescription is due. If you require a prescription earlier than this please attach a note to the repeat slip or add a comment to your online request and we will do our utmost to comply with your request.
Medication that you may have had before, but is not on a repeat prescription will need to be re authorised by your doctor. Please call the surgery and speak to our administration team who will be able to help arrange this for you.
Many of the local pharmacies offer a repeat prescription service. Please ask at your pharmacy for a form giving us authority to send your prescription direct to the pharmacy of your choice.

The surgery dispenses drugs to only those patients who live more than 1.6 kilometres from a pharmacy. We have an onsite pharmacy that actions these requests on our behalf. If you have a genuine physical difficulty in collecting your prescriptions please speak to an administrator who may be able to arrange delivery by a local pharmacist.
Prescription charges apply at the rate set by the Government and must be paid for when your medicines are collected. Proof of exemption from payment should be shown when signing the back of the prescription form.
