Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
Please note we do not accept medication requests over the telephone due to increased risk of error.
Requests for medication that is not due will only be given in exceptional circumstances.
Your prescription will be ready for collection 2 working days after we have received it.
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. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment.
When you receive a prescription for your medication it will have two parts:
1. The left hand part is given to the pharmacist to keep when your medication is dispensed.
2. The right hand part is your tear-off slip. You need to keep this to order your repeat medication. Handy Tip – Put this tear off slip into your handbag or pocket ready for when you need to reorder.
All the items of medication that are on your tear-off slip are repeat items and you must TICK clearly in the box opposite the items you wish to order.
If an item of medication does not appear on your tear-off slip then it is an ACUTE item and not a REPEAT. A receptionist must ask the GP to authorise these.
If you find that your medication runs out at different times and you are ordering more than once a month then please get your medication synchronised by informing the receptionists.
Before you order your next repeat prescription:
Kindly Stop and Consider –
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. (As of April 2015)
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.
The electronic prescription service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
Pick up a leaflet in practice or from your local pharmacy to mke your nomination.
