To avoid mistakes, Repeat Prescription requests are not taken over the telephone. When you collect your medication from the chemist you will be given your repeat medication slip.
About a week before you are due to run out of medication, tick the appropriate box(es) and indicate from which chemist you wish to collect your medication.
Please DO NOT use the 'enquiries' email address to order repeat prescriptions. These should only be ordered via the methods listed above.
The chemists may require a 48 hour turn-around time once they have collected your prescriptions from the surgery.
Any prescriptions which remain uncollected three weeks from the date of issue will be destroyed by the practice.
For further information follow this link to the NHS website:
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.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:-
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
Find out more about the prescription prepayment certificate.
