NHS electronic prescription services
This service allows prescriptions to be sent electronically from the surgery to your nominated pharmacy for collection. Please have a word with your chosen pharmacy or at our reception if you would like to use this service.
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed. Due to the high volume of prescriptions we are unable to contact patients to let them know their prescription is ready for collection.
NHS Prescription Charges/Exemptions
These charges apply in England only. For information about prescription exemptions please visit the NHS website

Recent Prescribing Guidance
In March 2018 NHS England published new prescribing guidance covering 35 minor, short term health conditions which are either self-limiting or suitable for self-care. A ‘self-limiting’ condition does not require any medical advice or treatment as it will usually clear up on its own (such as sore throats, coughs, colds and viruses) and a ‘minor illness that is suitable for self-care’ can be treated with items that can be purchased over the counter from a pharmacy. The new guidance from NHS England recommends that GPs no longer prescribe medicines that are readily available over the counter at pharmacies. Please click here for further details.
