   How to order a repeat prescription


Patients on regular medication may ask for a repeat prescription.

Most prescriptions are now printed by computer.
You will also be given a repeat prescription request form. Please use this form and tick the items you need or write with your name and address on a piece of paper stating which medicines are needed.


  • We offer Electronic Prescription Service. Discuss with your regular pharmacy to arrange your collection of your prescription with the chemist of your choice.
  • You can bring in or post your repeat prescription request to the surgery.
  • Enclose a stamped address envelope if you would like your prescription posted back to you.
  • Your prescription will be ready after 48 hours. For example, prescriptions received at the surgery on a Monday will be ready for collection after 4.00pm on Wednesday.
  • Please order your repeat prescription well before you run out of your medicine.
  • Please try to order all your medication at the same time.
  • Contraceptive pill prescriptions cannot be repeated without an appointment with a doctor or nurse.
  • Some local Pharmacy offers a home delivery service for people who have difficulty getting out. Please contact your chemist.

Prescription Charges

People in the following categories are automatically exempt from prescription charges:

  • Young people under 19 in full-time education.
  • Everyone over 60.
  • Pregnant women.

You may also be exempt or eligible for help with charges if you receive certain welfare benefits or are on a low income. Check the back of your prescription for more information about this.

It is sometimes worthwhile to buy a season ticket for pre-payment of prescription charges. Please call 0845 850 0030 to check the cost.
