Repeat Prescriptions

There are three ways to request a repeat prescription:

We cannot take requests over the phone.

Not all prescriptionscan be issued as repeat items. For all medication that is not on repeat prescription, please make a routine appointment.

Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Picking up prescriptions

You can collect prescriptions from the practice, or nominated pharamcies. You can find your nearest pharmacy here: Find a pharmacy - NHS (www.nhs.uk)

To change where you pick your prescriptions up from, please speak to reception or by using the NHS App.

Medication reviews

Medication reviews are essential to ensure the best continuing treatment of your condition.

Make sure you book in an appointment with our reception team when your medication is due for review. Check the date at the bottom of your repeat prescription if you are unsure when your review is due.

NHS charges

The current NHS prescription charge is £9.90 per item.

Some people will be able to get prescriptions for free. These include people who are:

  • On specific benefits or the NHS Low Income Scheme
  • Aged 60 or older
  • Aged 16 or younger
  • Aged 16-18 in full time education
