    Day you order your prescription

    Day prescription will be at the pharmacy











    Please note the above does not include the time it takes for your pharmacy to get your items ready. All pharmacies vary in the time they take to dispense your medication. You will need to check this with your nominated pharmacy.

    If you wish to change your nominated pharmacy then please contact the surgery prescription query line (option 4) between the hours of 10am-12pm and 2-4pm Monday to Friday. Alternatively you can do this on the NHS App once registered.

    Please be aware we have had reports from a number of patients that they are experiencing significant delays in receiving their medications when signed up with online pharmacies e.g. Pharmacy 2U & We have been informed that currently has a 14 day turnaround from when they receive your prescription to sending it to you in the post. Please do not sign up to online pharmacies unless you are prepared for significant delays in receiving your medication, as we are unable to get the prescription returned once it has been sent to them.

    The preferred ways of ordering are as follows (in order of most preferred):

    1. Via the NHS App:
      Please follow the directions via the above web link. Please note it may take a few days to initially get registered, but once registered you will be able to easily and quickly order your medications as well as change your nominated pharmacy if required. 
    2. Via online services:
      Please follow the above link to login or register for online services, but note you will also need to come into the surgery with 2 forms of ID before this can be set up.
      Please note the NHS App is preferred over online services as it offers the same services, but you are able to register without having to come into the surgery with 2 forms of ID. ***NOTE we are not currently accepting new registrations for patient access as patients should not be coming into the surgery unless you have a booked appointment. ***
    3. Via email:
      Please send your medication request to the above email address with the following information:
      Full Name:
      Date of Birth:
      Medication name, dose, frequency & quantity
      (For each medication requested)
      Any additional comments (such as your nominated pharmacy, why you are requesting a medication early or a medication which you have not had for some time)
    4. Via paper request: You can either tick the items you require on your repeat list or fill in a white request form in the reception foyer. This should then be dropped into the prescription post box (can be access from the outside of the building or just inside the reception foyer).

    Please also note we are unable to accept prescription requests from third parties, which includes pharmacies. If you order your medications via a pharmacy App or website then we will not be able to accept this.

  • Prescription prepayment certificates

    If you need more than 13 prescribed medicines in a year, you will save money with this.

    A single prescription is £9.15, a 3 month prepayment is £29.65 and a 12 month prepayment is £105.90.

    Click on Prescription Prepayment Application and follow the application process at the bottom of the page.


  • Over The Counter Medication

    Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns, even if you qualify for free prescriptions.

    Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community. The team of health professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns and if your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they’ll ensure you get the care you need. Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
