Acute Prescriptions

After you have been seen by a clinician, 90% of prescriptions will be issued to you at the time of your appointment, however, some occasions may require you to either come back and collect your script or we will send it to the Pharmacy of your choice.

Medication Reviews

Repeat medication is usually authorised for six months unless otherwise specified. Generally, you will be asked to speak to or be seen by a clinician at the end of this period.

Please ensure that you book an appointment by using our online Medication Review form in time to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. If you enquire with the surgery and provide us with the details of your medical review we will direct you to the relevant clinician.

Our highly trained Practice Nurses oversee all routine checkups.

Prescriptions 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).

You can find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions by visiting the NHS website.

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.

View the cost of prescriptions on the NHS website.
