Our prescription service is now paperless, if you do not have a designated pharmacy for your prescription to be sent electronically, please contact the surgery. If you haven't got a designated pharmacy you may not be able to get your prescription if we are forced to close following a COVID19 pandemic.
Please leave your request for a repeat prescription at reception or post it to the surgery. Tick the items you need on the right-hand section of your repeat prescription form.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescriptions directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
Your prescription will be ready for collection after 3 working days. If you prefer, we can post it back to you (you will need to provide a stamped, addressed envelope). The surgery has no control over the postal times, so please be aware and allow adequate time for return of prescriptions and during busy periods. Please note we are unable to take prescription requests over the phone. If you are unable to wait 3 working days you will need to make an appointment to see a doctor. Prescription requests can not be taken over the telephone by the receptionists or the doctors.

We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you will be asked to make an appointment.
From 4th August 2014 to ensure high quality clinical care and increased demand the Partners have taken the decision not to fax routine prescriptions. Only in exceptional circumstances and with GP approval will a prescription be faxed.
From the 1st May 2014 to comply with the Care Quality Commission standard on security and data protection we require permission for prescription collections to be formally recorded on our clinical system. Along with the name, a date of birth may be requested by staff when prescriptions are collected. With this in mind please make sure the person collecting has the relevant information. Prescriptions will not be given to anyone other than the patient unless permission is recorded.
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. 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
Please allow 72 hours for collection from the surgery and at least 96 hours if you have requested to collect from a chemist, excluding weekends and bank holidays, if you have any problems please telephone the surgery.
