Other Ways to Order Your Prescriptions
- In Person:
Return the computerised repeat prescription slip indicating the medication you require to reception. A box is provided in reception to enable you to deliver your prescription without having to wait.
- By Post:
Post, using a secure tracked postal service, the computerised repeat prescription slip indicating the medication you require to the surgery, enclosing a stamped self addressed envelope. If posting please remember to give at least one weeks notice for a first class stamp and longer if using second class.
Some of the local chemists also offer a collection service for the surgery. Please ask your regular chemist for details.
- Alternative Online Method:
This alternative method for ordering repeat prescriptions is now decommissioned. If you have not already done so please register for Patient Access or use the NHS App to order your Repeat Prescriptions online.
Due to the possibility of errors, requests for repeat prescriptions will not be taken over the telephone.
When will my Prescription be ready?
Prescriptions will be ready for collection in two working days if you will be picking the prescription up from the Surgery.
|Request Received:||Script Ready By:|
Please request repeat prescriptions well in advance of public holidays, etc.
For those that request their prescription be sent to a local pharmacy then the time will be dependant on that pharmacy. Please contact the relevant pharmacy for an indication of the timescale.
Collecting your Prescription
Patients can either collect their prescription from the surgery or a chemist of their choice.
In order for prescriptions to be collected from a chemist, patients need to register at their chemist of choice for the 'Prescription Collection Service'. Once the Chemist has agreed to collection on your behalf, Patients then need to instruct the Practice which must be in writing - forms are available from most chemists.
Electronic Prescriptions Service
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
Prescription Charges and Exemptions
The NHS prescription charge is a flat rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can't afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need a lot of medication.
