If you take medication on a long term basis this may be provided through our computerised repeat prescription service. If an item is authorised by the doctor for a limited number of repeats you will receive a tear-off slip with your prescription. You may order your repeats by either dropping in or posting your tear off slip having ticked those items which you require.
Please allow 48 hours for repeat prescriptions to be ready for collection or posted back to you in an SAE.
You may register for Online Repeat Prescription request or alternatively email us your request to firstname.lastname@example.org
Patients registered for online access can request repeat prescriptions via the link at the top of this page.
Note: If you need logging details please come to the surgery and we need proof of ID e.g. (Passport/Driving Licence) in order to issue you registration details.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

If you need a further prescription for an item which is not on the repeat service please make an appointment to discuss this with a doctor as only they can authorise such prescriptions. All patients on repeat medication will need periodic review by the doctor to check that the medication is still necessary, effective and not causing unwanted side effects.
Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.35
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
- 3-month PPC: £30.25
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.
