Repeat Prescriptions - Click here to order

We process over 1500 repeat prescription items every week and it is important we do this in safe and efficient way.

Repeat Prescriptions can be requested in the following ways:-

Whichever way you request your prescriptions please ensure you include the following:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • First line of address
  • Name of each medication you require  (small pink tablets, heart tablets, brown inhaler etc is NOT specific enough and is not safe)
  • The name of the Pharmacy you would like to collect your prescription from.

Please note that we cannot accept requests over the telephone.  This decision has been taken in the interest of accuracy and patient safety.

Whichever method you choose, please allow five full working days before repeat prescriptions are collected from the Pharmacy of your choice.  This is the time it will take to process prescriptions at the practice and then at the Pharmacy.  Please do not call the Pharmacy to check that the prescription is ready for collection as this is taking up valuable staff time and slowing down the dispensing of prescriptions.    

Please use the table below to see when your prescription will be ready for collection.

In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:

  • those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
  • those who are age exempt
  • those with certain medical conditions
  • More information is available at NHS Choices

NHS Charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.65
