Prescriptions

Repeat Prescription Requests

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

The practice does not accept requests for medication over the telephone.

If you have any issues or queries, please contact the practice.

Prescription Ordering Direct

The NHS Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service is an easy way for you to order your repeat prescription by telephone. They can be contacted at 01502 718615.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and the notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please submit a medication review if requested by the practice.

Prescription Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

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.

View the cost of prescriptions on the NHS website.
