You can order your prescription in the following ways:
From 1st July 2021- Please note that for your own safety requests for medication are not accepted over the telephone.
Housebound patients can contact their local pharmacy many of which will make arrangements to collect and deliver prescriptions to the patient’s residence.
If you order your prescriptions on-line and would like a pharmacy to collect please notify the pharmacy that you would like them to collect your prescription and dispense the medication.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy ask your pharmacy to add you to their list, our reception staff can also add your chosen pharmacy.

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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
