If the doctor has prescribed a medication for you, which you will be taking on a regular basis, this is called a repeat prescription. When you receive your first prescription from the doctor you will see it has two parts, a green half and a white half. You will need to take the prescription to the chemist to be dispensed. On collection of your medication the chemist will give you the white half of your prescription back, this white half (request slip) is used to order your next prescription from the surgery.
To order medication you will need to bring your repeat slip into surgery, post it to us or email us at email@example.com.We do not take medication requests over the phone.
Please allow 4 working days for collection/receipt of your prescription.
You can now order prescriptions online. Before you can use this service please contact the surgery to obtain your username and password.
Please note, you can only process medication on your repeat list using the online services. Please do not request acute medication or sick notes via the online service. Thank you.

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

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre payment certificate.
