Repeat prescription requests are changing. Click here for more information.

Prescriptions

From 15th January 2024, we are no longer accepting hand-written repeat prescription requests. 

You can order your repeat prescription by:

  • Requesting your medication on the Patient Access app
  • Submitting an admin query via the ‘contact us online’ button at the top of this page
  • Requesting your medication from your pharmacy either by telephone or in person

If you are on long term treatment of any kind, you will be supplied with a repeat prescription list that must be agreed by the doctor.

You will be asked to make an telephone appointment for items that are not on repeat prescription.

Please note you must give your repeat prescription order a minimum of three working days to be completed. 

Please be advised that we typically do not notify patients when medications have been signed off. To check if your medication is ready to collect, please contact your nominated pharmacy. 

If you are requesting a prescription early, please specify in detail the reason for this on your request.

Requests cannot be accepted over the phone because of the risk of mistakes.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

It is now possible to have your repeat prescriptions sent electronically from the GP to a pharmacy of your choice. Ask at reception or at a pharmacy for a nomination form which you complete and hand in to your chosen pharmacy.

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.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.00
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
