Requests for repeat prescriptions should be made by using the computerised repeat slip provided with your repeat prescription.This should be handed in at reception or posted to the surgery.
You may also request your medication online through SystmOnline. Please contact the surgery to register for this service.
If your regular medication is not on a slip or this is the first time that you have requested a repeat prescription then a hand-written note, specifying the medication you require and the quantity, is necessary to avoid errors.
Stopping community pharmacy requests aims to address safety and medication waste.
We understand that in some cases other methods of medication ordering may be unsuitable. If this is the case, please let the GP surgery know and we will consider the situation on an individual basis.
Requests will not be accepted over the telephone. 48 hours notice is required.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
