As you may be aware the practice is under a lot of pressure and to relieve some of that pressure we would like to enable your prescriptions to go directly to a Pharmacy of your choice.
Once you have placed your order in your usual way, your prescription will then be sent directly to the Pharmacy where you can collect when ready or arrange to have it delivered. If you order repeat medication could you please respond to this message with the name and address of the Pharmacy you regularly use so we can update our records.
When you request a prescription please use the computer-generated list from your last prescription. If you do not have this, please ask reception for a repeat prescription form to complete.
You can request your repeat prescriptions by:
Alternatively you can order online. New users are required to complete a simple registration document.
If you are housebound and cannot get your repeat prescription request to the surgery, please contact your surgery reception on the numbers below and they will be happy to process your prescription over the telephone. This service is only for housebound patients.

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

Please allow 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
