Online prescriptions

In order to use our online facilities you first have to register with the surgery. If you are not already registered please contact reception to obtain details.

Repeat Prescriptions

Requests for repeat prescriptions should be put in the box provided using the tear off printed portion from your previous prescription. Tick the items you require.

Telephone requests are not accepted unless there are special circumstances. This is NHS standard policy for the ordering of presriptions due to the risk of errors being made. Mis-heard information can lead to dangerous mistakes.

You can also order your repeat prescriptions online.

If you need to request your prescription early due to holidays please put your request in writing no longer than 1 week before you go, please include your dates of departure and return

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Please collect after 4pm on the day it is ready. Any problems please telephone the surgery.

Prescription 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).

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.

Dental Problems

If you are experiencing dental problems please book an appointment with your dentist. We are unable to treat dental problems and antibiotics do not help dental pain so your GP will not prescribe them for this reason. If your problem is urgent please contact emergency dental care on 0161 476 9651. Patients can get over the counter painkillers such as paracetamol and ibuprofen from local pharmacies whilst awaiting dental treatment.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £7.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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.
