Please note from 1 August 2015 we are unable to take prescription requests over the telephone. We have listened to patient feedback and patients are unable to get through to book appointements, etc.
Requests can be made at any time in person at reception, via your chemist, in writing or by fax (fax number 01706 355379).
Alternatively you can register for online access via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration prior to using this service.
If you would like to gain access to this service, please come into the surgery and fill in the relevant forms with proof of ID so that an account can be allocated for you.
To assist the receptionist in processing your prescription you will need to give the following details:
It is important to give the names of all the medication you require to help prevent mistakes occurring.
Please note that all prescriptions would be available 24 hours after being given to the surgery. Prescriptions are kept at reception for four weeks before they are destroyed.
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.
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 15 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
Please allow 24 hours for your request to be processed, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays
Any problems please telephone the surgery.
