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.
