We have a computerised system for patients who require regular supplies of medication. This ensures that all prescriptions are correctly written and automatically checked against your records. It is helpful, safer and will avoid mistakes if you use the order slip attached to each prescription. To use the slip, tick each item that you require.
You can request repeat prescriptions in writing only (except in special circumstances). This avoids errors in preparing your prescription.
If you do not have an order slip, please write down the following details on a slip available at Reception:
Written requests should be put in the box provided in the waiting room or posted to the surgery. If return postage of a prescription is required,please enclose a S.A.E.
Please request a repeat prescription at least 2 days before it is needed.

Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
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 PPC.
