We offer a 2 working-day service for repeat prescriptions. Please make your request in writing (preferably using the slip attached to your last prescription where you can indicate which medication is required).
You can make your requests in the following ways:

The prescription will be automatically sent to your nominated Pharmacy for collection. If you have not assigned a Pharmacy your Prescription will await collection at Reception

If you are on repeat medication your record will be reviewed annually by your GP. You may be invited into the surgery to discuss any amendments to your medication following the review.
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. 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.
For more detail, please click here for the 2019 prescription charges.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. Also some prescription medicines may be cheaper to buy ‘over the counter’. If you are in any doubt have a chat with your pharmacist.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
EPS enables prescribers – such as GPs and practice nurses – to send prescriptions electronically to a dispenser (such as a pharmacy) of the patient’s choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and our team.
