Please use the link at the top of the page to order a repeat prescription online. If you do not have login details please speak to reception.
Prescriptions can be ordered by telephone for:
- Housebound Patients
- Over 75’s
- Nursing /Residential Homes/EMI
From the time of request the collection of the signed prescription will be 2 working days, i.e an order placed on Monday will be ready for collection on Wednesday afternoon. This information is printed on the repeat side of all prescriptions.
The repeat side of the prescription needs to be ticked to indicate items required and then posted to the Practice.
Once the request has been received the prescription will be ready for collection within 2 working days.
By Hand / Over Desk
Drop the repeat side of the prescription (items require to be ticked) in the prescription letter box or the Surgery letter box. Requests may be taken over the reception desk by a member of staff by simply printing the B side of the repeat medication and asking the patient (if able) to tick the items.
Again the prescription will be ready for collection within 2 working days.
Consultations are not to be used for solely ordering repeat medication and the Clinician may ask the patient to order routine medications via Reception.
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.

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.
