To obtain repeat medication, please place the repeat counterfoil in the box at reception, or through the letterbox if the surgery is closed. Please remember that we require 3 working days notice to process prescriptions. Any prescription requested after 5pm will not be processed until the following day. You can collect your medication any time the surgery is open, although we request that where possible this is before 6.30pm. See the front of this booklet for opening times.
Please note that if you request a repeat prescription ealier than one week before your prescription is due this will not be processed until the due date. Should you need to order early please either put the reason on your repeat request or speak to our reception team who will be happy to help.

Repeat Prescription Requests by E-mail
If you would like to take advantage of our e-mail service, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will happily send you details of how to make your request. For all e-mailed requests we will need the name of the patient, date of birth, address and details of the medication required. A reply will be sent to acknowledge receipt of the request.
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 3 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
