CALL NHS 111 when it's not an EMERGENCY but you need medical help or advice when we are closed
Prescription Queries are only dealt with between (10.00-11.00 AM or 2.00-3.00 PM) or you can leave a note with reception for them to deal with.
There may be occasions when the doctor does not feel that prescribing drugs is clinically necessary. Repeat prescriptions will only be given where the doctor feels that this is clinically appropriate.
You can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
A repeat prescription system is issued at the doctors' discretion for regular medications. Repeat prescriptions cannot be arranged over the telephone by our staff. If you have been given a repeat slip please indicate which items are required and which of the local chemists you wish the prescription to be sent to and leave the slip at reception.
Prescriptions are dealt with twice daily but, please allow at least 4 working days for this, and extra time for the chemist to check your drugs are in stock. Only a certain number of repeats are allowed before it is necessary to be reassessed by the doctor; regular medication usually means that regular check-ups are also necessary.
The practice has a new clinical system which has the ability for you to order your prescription online - please speak to reception so that your details can be updated to allow you to do this.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
