If you have regular medication for a condition, that your doctor is aware of, you can periodically collect a repeat prescription from the practice without having to make an appointment.
Repeat prescription requests can be handed in, in the following ways:
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration prior to using the 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.
More information on medicines can be found by clicking here.
Please allow at least two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.

Changes to prescribing Gluten Free Foods
From 1st December 2016 East Leicester and Rutland CCG have changed to the range and amount of foods that will be available on prescription for people with Coeliac Disease and Dermatitis Herpetiformis.
Why have these changes been made to Gluten Free Prescribing?
These changes are happening as it is easier than ever to eat a healthy and balanced diet without relying completely on gluten-free substitutes for wheat based products such as bread, biscuits and pasta.
There is also now a large range of Gluten-Free products available in supermarkets and online, which there weren't before. Over the past few years these products have reduced in price.
What is changing?
If you are a patient diagnosed with Coeliac Disease and Dermatitis Herpaformis you will now be able to have upto 8 units per month of bread and flour on prescription.
The prescribing of pasta, pizza bases, cereal crisp breads, cakes and biscuits is not recommended as these foods are now available from supermarkets at a similar cost to their gluten containing equivalents.
Whilst there is a reduction to the number of units you could receive per month, there is now a larger range of gluten-free products available in supermarkets and online, which over the past few years have reduced in price.
There is a selection of gluten-free bread and flour which is also wheat free, lactose free and milk free available on prescription for those who have multiple intolerances.
