Repeat Prescriptions

Please allow two working days for your repeat request so that you do not run out of medication (this does not include public holidays or weekends).

You can order your repeat prescription in the following ways: 

  • Online via the link at the top of this page
  • Using the tear-off slip which lists all the drugs for the prescription along with the appropriate dosage. When a new prescription is required please clearly indicate the item or items you require on the request slip and hand it into the surgery. If you do not have a repeat slip please ask our reception staff

We do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone or email.

Please contact the surgery regarding a SystemOne Log in. 

Medication Collection

Chemists will deliver medications by arrangement to patients home address. Please talk to your chemist if you require this service. 

If you wish to enclose a stamped addressed envelope, we are happy to post your prescription to you. You can also arrange with some local chemists to have your repeat prescriptions delivered.

Medication Reviews

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.

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.

NHS charges
From 1 April 2014, the charges are:
- Prescription (per item): £8.60
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
- 3-month PPC: £29.10
- If you will need 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. The charge for a single prescription item is £8.05, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
- PPC telephone advice line 0300 330 1341
- General Public - Buy or Renew a PPC On-line
- There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website


Electronic Prescription Service 

If you get regular prescriptions, the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) may be able to save you time by avoiding unnecessary trips to your GP.

EPS makes it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to the pharmacy or dispenser of your choice.

Choosing a pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor to process your EPS prescription is called nomination. To nominate a pharmacy, please speak either to your preferred pharmacy or one of our reception team who will be able to do this for you.

This means you'll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice – instead, you can go straight to the nominated pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor to pick up your medicines or medical appliances.

Because your pharmacist has already received your electronic prescription, they may be able to prepare your items in advance, so you just have to pick it up with no extra wait. However, this depends on the capacity of pharmacists on the day, and may not be possible all the time.

You can always change or cancel your nomination. Simply speak to your GP or pharmacist before you order your next prescription. Allow time for the update to take place to avoid your next prescription being sent to the wrong place.
