If you need a repeat prescription you will be given a repeat prescription slip to ensure accuracy. You can order your repeat prescription by telephoning our Repeat Prescription Order line on 01621 876435. This line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Your repeat prescription request slip provides a date when your medication review is due; you will need to make an appointment with a doctor/nurse practitioner/practice nurse. This is a safeguard to make sure that you are taking the medicine properly and to allow for any changes, which may be necessary. This may seem inconvenient, but an annual review is necessary for the provision of good patient care.
Prescriptions may be collected during dispensary hours only. Postal requests for repeat prescriptions (with SAE please) also require AT LEAST TWO DAYS' NOTICE, again excluding weekends and bank holidays.
A Medication Delivery Service is available for housebound patients.
There is a patient Query/Advice line available on 01621 876436. This line is for general enquiries only and not for ordering of prescriptions.
*PLEASE ALLOW AT LEAST TWO DAYS (excluding weekends and bank holidays) FOR THE REPEAT PRESCRIPTION TO BE GENERATED. ALLOW A FURTHER DAY IF YOU REQUIRE THE PRESCRIPTION TO BE DISPENSED.
Dispensing patients are able to obtain medication on prescription from the Prescription Department, where other services are available and our qualified staff are on site to assist you.
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.
If you will have 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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
