Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by either ticking which medication is required on a repeat slip, by written request or on-line via the link at the top of this page.
Please note that repeat prescriptions cannot be taken over the telephone.
Prescriptions will be ready for collection in two working days (48 hours).
Prescriptions should be ordered approximately 7 days before you run out of medication. Please note, the surgery cannot accept prescription requests that are requested more than 7 days before they are due.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

Non Prescribed Medications
Over-the-counter medicine (also known as OTC or non prescription medicine) refers to medicine that you can buy without a prescription.
They are safe and effective when you follow the directions on the label and as directed by your health care professional.

Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.65
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
- 3-month PPC: £31.25
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 PPC.
