Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways
Patients are encouraged to use our on-line access system to book an appointment (GP Appointments only) and to order a repeat prescription). Please see the Appointments Page for full details.
Please note patients should allow two clear working days for prescriptions to be processed and ready for collection.

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 note we do not have facilities for card payments and can only accept cash or cheques.
Please allow 2 clear working days , excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. We encourage the use of our on-line ordering system for repeat requests.
