Prescriptions

Click here to order your repeat prescriptionusing our simple online system

If you are on long-term medication, you can order repeat prescriptions by using our Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) to send your prescription to your nominated pharmacy electronically.

This means:

  • You no longer need to collect your paper prescriptions from the Practices, instead you can go directly to your nominated pharmacy, saving you time.
  • You will have more choice about where to get your medicines from because they can be collected from a pharmacy near to where you live, work or shop.
  • You may not have to wait as long at the pharmacy, as your repeat prescriptions could be prepared before you arrive.

Please allow 7 days for requests to be processed and ready for collection at your nominated pharmacy.

Medication reviews


Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a Doctor, Clinical Pharmacist, Nurse Practitioner or a Practice Nurse at least once a year, to review these regular medications. This can be more frequent for certain medicines.

A notification should appear on your repeat slip, so you know when this is coming up.

Please look out for this notification and book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

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.
