PRESCRIPTION CHARGE INCREASE
The charge for NHS prescriptions will increase to £8.80 per item as of 01 April 2018. There will be no change to the Prescription Prepayment Certificates charges.
You may order repeat prescriptions by handing in or posting the repeat prescription slip to the surgery or by faxing the slip to us (fax number 01759 305123).
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescriptions online via the secure Patient Access website (see information and links below).
If you already have a log in for this facility to book appointments with us, this will now allow you to order repeat prescriptions as well.
If not, just come along to the surgery and one of our Receptionists will be able to arrange full access for you. Please remember to bring proof of ID with you.
The dispensary will prepare your prescription for the doctor to check and sign. You need to allow 2 full working days (excluding weekends) and then you can collect the prescription from the surgery after 12:00 the following day.
NB: We supply medication to all our patients who live more than one mile from a chemist.
We can only accept repeat prescription requests for items which have been previously agreed by the doctor to be suitable for repeat prescription ordering and for which you have not yet used up all your quota of issues before the doctor needs to review your medication. In these circumstances we shall usually be able to meet your request but sometimes there may be reasons why we cannot issue a repeat prescription for some or all of the items. The dispensary will explain when you call to collect the prescription.
