Ordering Your Repeat
Do It Online – the quickest and safest way to order you prescription is to request it online. You need an account to do this, just pop into reception with photo ID and complete a form and we can set you up with login details.
An alternate way is to come down to the surgery and fill in your repeat slip or one of our prescription forms. We regret we cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone. All requests take 2 workings days (excluding bank holidays and weekends)
You can post your prescription request to the surgery and if a stamp addressed envelope is enclosed we will return this to you. Please ensure you leave enough time to account for the postal service. You will notice on the bottom of repeat slips your review date. You must arrange an appointment with a nurse, or doctor, for the monitoring of your condition, and to check that your continuing medication is appropriate.
Patient Notice - Quantity of drugs issued
Some patients may notice change in the quantity of drugs issued on their script. National policy only allow doctors to issue 28 day supply of medication, however as a practice we have reached a compromise to offer 56 days supply.
We will be introducing this change from 1 July 2015 and only patients who have been issued 84 day supply will be affected.
If you have any concerns on how this change may affect you, please speak to your pharmacist or GP.
Vitamin D Prescribing
Effective immediately we will no longer be prescribing vitamin D supplements unless patients have a severe vitamin D deficiency or another medical reason why vitamin D is required. Please read here for more information.
Paying NHS Prescription Charges If you pay for your prescriptions and require more than 4 prescription items in any 3 months (or 14 in 12 months) you could save money with a Pre-Payment Certificate (PPC).
