Repeat prescriptions may be requested in the following ways:
A slip is printed out showing all items which are authorised for regular repeats. Please use this slip when re-ordering. If you are faxing us a request please ensure that all the details are clear.
This practice does not prescribe long term benzodiazepines ('Z' drugs). These would include diazapam, nitrazepam, temazapan, zopiclone and zolpiderm due to the risk os addiction and medical harm. If you are taking benzodiazepines, the practice will aim to review the medications and if appropriate to reduce gradually with a view to stop. We may refer you to the local reduction team, to enable you to work together with an aim to reducing/stop these.
If you require your prescription to be collected by a particular pharmacy, please ensure that the pharmacy of your choice does provide this service.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. If you are unable to order your medication on your repeat slip or online it may because your medication review is due Please contact the surgery where our medical reception team will ensure that, if necessary, you have the appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 15 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.
