Repeat prescriptions

Click here to order your Repeat Prescription online

When ordering a repeat prescription please use the slip attached to your previous prescription and tick only the items you require.

You may post your repeat prescription, enclosing a S.A.E .

Alternatively you can register for our online services and order via the link at the top of this page.

Please allow a minimum of a full 48 hours for collection of a repeat prescription:

  • If you place your request Monday it should be ready Thursday.
  • If you place your request Tuesday it should be ready Friday.

Medication reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Prescription 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 for those who can afford to pay for their medicines.  Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
