Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:

  • Electronically via the internet, using your Patient Access account providing you have registered to use that service.
  • By email, by sending an email to [email protected] with your name and request
  • By post, by ticking the right hand side of your last prescription.
  • By hand at Reception, filling out a repeat prescription slip.

Please note we do not accept orders for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.

Please allow 2 working days for the medical centre to process your prescription before collection.

Collecting Your Repeat Prescription

You can collect your prescription in person from reception, or arrange for it to be sent directly to a pharmacy of your choice.

The pharmacy will either collect your prescription from us directly or retrieve it electronically via the national Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) –please note that there are a small number of medications that cannot  be processed electronically.

Please liaise with your chosen pharmacy regarding the number of days they require to issue you medication, which will be in addition to the two days we require to produce your prescription.

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.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.

Use this service if:

  • you think you might have coronavirus
  • in the last 14 days you've been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus – see coronavirus advice for travellers and a list of high risk countries on nhs.uk
  • you've been in close contact with someone with coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people. Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.

In Scotland call your GP or NHS 24 on 111 out of hours.
In Wales call 111 (if available in your area) or 0845 46 47.
In Northern Ireland call 111.
