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.
Repeat prescriptions cannot be requested by telephone.
Please allow at least 2 full working days before collection.
