Requesting A Repeat Prescription

You do not need to see a GP or a Nurse for a repeat prescription, unless you are due a medication review or are concerned about the medications you are on. You can order a repeat prescription by bringing your repeat prescription slip into the surgery or post it in to us.

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.

Repeat prescriptions will be issued, normally, for patients on long-term treatment, albeit regular reviews are undertaken. Requests for repeat prescriptions should be left in one of the 'repeat prescription boxes' provided. Please use the repeat slip attached to your last prescription whenever possible.

Please allow at least 2 full working days before collection.

This service is available from all community pharmacies in Sheffield during their opening hours. In an emergency and at the patient request pharmacist can supply a prescription-only medication without a valid prescription to a patient who has previously been prescribed the requested medication.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.

What does this mean for you?
If you collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time.

You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop. You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy as there will be time for your repeat prescriptions to be ready before you arrive.

Sheffield Stop List

Please note Sheffield practices have been asked by the local CCG not to prescribe some medications that are available over the counter (OTC). The list of medications is called the SHEFFIELD STOP LIST
