Once the GP has agreed you can have medication on repeat, our computer will print a repeat order tear-off form with your prescription. There are four ways to order your repeat prescription:
All requests will be ready to collect or sent direct to your chosen pharmacy within two working days of receipt. Please remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
We cannot give repeat medicines indefinitely without reviewing your condition. The length of time between reviews will depend on your condition. Therefore, we may ask you to make an appointment with the doctor or nurse before we issue another prescription.
The dispensary telephone enquiry line is open 09:00 – 17:00, please note this is for medication queries only. Unfortunately, due to possible errors we cannot take requests for repeat medication over the telephone.
Do you know?
The practice offers a free weekly delivery service of medication to our most vulnerable dispensing patients.
We can offer a monitored dosage system for our vulnerable dispensing patients. The monitored dosage system lowers the risk of unintentional non-compliance.
For carers, the monitored dosage system allows them the confidence that their loved one is taking the appropriate medication safely.
The dispensers can help with a dispensary review of your medication. This is different to the medication review conducted by the doctor or the nurses. The dispensary review check you are able to manage your medication (i.e. pop out of the blisters) that you understand what each of your medications are for, and if there is anything the dispensary staff can help you with.
Please ask any of our dispensary team for more information.
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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
