You can also request repeat prescriptions by leaving the prescription at Reception at any time.
Or by leaving the repeat request in the prescription request box
Please leave 48 hours or two working days from the time of your request for your prescription to be ready for collection.
This means that :
- Request on Monday available after 4.00pm on Wednesday
- Request on Tuesday available after 4.00pm on Thursday
- Request on Wednesday available after 4.00pm on Friday
- Request on Thursday available after 4.00pm on the following Monday

If you have not had the prescription for a long time, for example, over a year, please speak to reception or make an appointment rather than just requesting the medication(s).
We have been given new guidance by our Clinical Commissioning Group about prescribing items which are available over the counter. A fact sheet is available at Reception or can be downloaded
The current cost per prescription is £8.40 unless you have an exemption.
If you feel you may be a candidate for exemption, advice is available from NHS Choices - Health Costs and Exemptions (see link below). It is also possible to buy a pre-payment certificate if you have a number of regular repeat prescriptions. NHS Choices Health Costs
