If you have registered with the new system, SystmOnline then please click here to order your prescription.
If you are on regular medication you may request a repeat prescription although your doctor will review your medication regularly. These prescriptions are produced on the computer and there is a printed list of your medicines attached to the right hand side of the prescription.
To obtain repeat medication, either click on the electronic link above or tick the item/s you require on your current repeat prescription and take or post the list to the surgery. You may also fax your request for a repeat prescription. The fax number is 01277 821226.
We need at least two working days for repeat prescriptions and may need longer for dispensing patients if we have to order drugs from the supplier.
To avoid possible errors we ask that all requests for repeat medications are in writing.
Please remember that when the doctor requests to see you before authorising a further repeat prescription, this request is made for your own benefit.
You may obtain your medication directly from the surgery if you live more than a mile from the chemist. You must ask for this service when you first register with the practice. If you live within one mile of a chemist you have to obtain your medication from a chemist. This is a rule which cannot be altered.
Please note that the official NHS interpretation of a mile is “as the crow flies”.
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 from 1st April 2017. 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 PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
