In the interests of safety we DO NOT accept requests for repeat medication over the telephone. There are very few exceptions to this rule.
Request slips (which come from the pharmacist with the previous repeat prescription) can be left at either surgery and we also accept requests by fax, letter or online via the link at the top of this page.
Oakley patients should indicate whether they wish to collect their prescription from the surgery or from the chemist. At Overton, unless indicated otherwise, prescriptions will routinely be sent across to Overton Pharmacy.
If you send a stamped addressed envelope with your prescription request we are happy to post your prescription to you.
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 5 working days notice when requesting repeat prescriptions.
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.
