You can order your repeat prescription using any of the following methods:
You can order online by following the link at the top of this page and completing a simple one-off registration. If you have already registered, please click on the same link and sign in to the online prescriptions system.
The electronic prescribing service allows patients who have repeat medication to nominate a pharmacy of their choice to receive their prescriptions electronically, saving time on unnecessary trips to the surgery. Once you have nominated a pharmacy you can request your medication through them by phone.
You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time but you must inform the practice so we can update your medical record. A small number of prescribed items including controlled drugs are excluded from this service.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
