There are 2 ways in which you can order your repeat prescription. They are:

  1. Online – The easiest way to order prescriptions is online. If you are not already registered for online line services please follow the link here to register.
  2. Pharmacy – You can liaise with your local pharmacy and they will order any regular medication automatically

By whichever method, details of name, address, date of birth, phone number and details of the medication requested (name, strength and quantity) must be stated and legible. Please leave 48 hr in between requesting a prescription and either attending the practice to collect it or requesting it to be sent to your nominated pharmacy electronically.

From time to time you will be asked to make an appointment to see one of the GPs or the Practice Nurse. This is necessary procedure to ensure that your medication is safely and appropriately prescribed for you. It will also give you the opportunity to discuss any problems that you feel may be linked to your medication.

  • Let us know if you find that your regular medicines are out of sync so we can correct it for you.
  • Return all medicines you no longer need to a pharmacy or surgery for disposal

NHS prescription charges, exemptions and prepayment certificate

Go to the NHS website for the latest prescription charges and exemption criteria

If you know you’ll have to pay for a lot of NHS prescriptions, it may be cheaper to buy a prescription prepayment certificate (PPC) – effectively a prescription “season ticket”.

Find out more information about the Prescription Prepayment Certificate on the NHS website.

Why can’t I get a prescription for an over-the-counter medicine?

A GP, nurse or pharmacist will generally not give you a prescription for over-the-counter medicines for a range of minor health conditions.

Instead, over-the-counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket. Your local pharmacy can offer help and advice to manage minor health concerns.

To find out further information go to the NHS website.
