If you take medication regularly, you will receive a tear-off slip with each prescription, listing the items you have been prescribed for repeat use and the date at which you next need to see the doctor for review .Please use this slip to request repeat supplies: tick the items you need and return the slip to the surgery.
Most of our patients choose to use the Medigreen pharmacy which is next door to the surgery, and so we send on signed prescriptions there for dispensing. If you do not wish to use this chemist, please add a note"keep in surgery" to your prescription request so that you can collect the signed prescription form from the surgery and take it to the chemist of your choice.
Repeat prescription requests will not normally be taken by telephone as this can lead to mistakes. Please allow at least 3 working days before collecting your prescription.

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
