Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions by using the rear-off portion of their last prescription. Simply tick the items required and forward it to the surgery.
Alternatively you can register for our online services and then access the online repeat prescription system via the link at the top of this page.
You will need to contact the surgery and ask for login details. You can either do this in person at the reception desk, or by sending a request in writing. If you enclose a stamped envelope, we will post the log-in details to you.

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 notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
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 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website

We will 'go live' with the Electronic Prescription Service. Patients wishing to use the service will need to 'nominate' a pharmacy. Please read the information below, you can find the nomination form at the bottom of the page for completion at home. Alternatively, please ask at Reception for a copy of the EPS leaflet.
You can also view a short video at the bottom of the page, giving information on the service.
EPS is an NHS-funded service in England. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the healthcare professional that you choose to get your medication or appliances from.
If you currently collect your repeat prescriptions from your GP, you will not have to visit your GP practice to pick up your paper prescription. Instead, your GP will send it electronically to the place you choose, saving you time. You will have more choice about where to get your medication from because it can be collected from a pharamcy near where you live, work or shop. You may also not have to as long at the pharmacy as there will be more time for your repeat prescriptions to be prepared before you arrive.
YES - if you have a stable condition and you:
NO - if you:
Yes you can. Nomination is very flexible and can be changed or cancelled at any time. You can do this by either:
Make sure you tell them before your prescription is due or your prescription might be sent to the wrong place.
It is important to remember that you don't have to use nomination on every occasion. If you don't wish to use nomination on a particular prescription, you should let your GP practice know before the prescription is issued.
You need to choose where you want your GP to send your electronic prescription. This is called 'nomination'.
You can choose:
Once you have been given information about the service and provided consent, any of the healthcare professionals mentioned above can register your nomination on your behalf.
Yes. Your electronic prescription will only be seen by the same people that see your paper prescriptions now:
You can check your nomination status securely and confidentially at any GP practice, pharmacy, dispensing appliance contractors or dispensing GP practice that offers EPS.
More information about the Electronic Prescription Service, including more common questions, can be accessed on the website at: http://systems.hscic.gov.uk/eps, or you can ask a member of staff at any pharmacy or dispensing appliance contractor, or at your GP practice for more information.
