Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by bringing your repeat request to the surgery, ordering on the internet using Patient Access, by post or by fax to 0161 303 8377. Deliveries can also be arranged by the pharmacy for housebound patients only.
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to carry out a simple one-off registration.
Please order all items at one time if possible.
Please do not use an appointment to acquire a repeat prescription unless you have a problem with your medication or have been asked to attend for a medication review.
The way to dispose of any unwanted medication is to return them directly to your local pharmacy as we cannot accept them.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, practice nurse or Healthcare Assistant at least once a year to review these regular medications and a 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 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).
Certain medical conditions entitle you to a prescription charge exemption certificate. These include condtions such as Diabetes (not managed by diet alone), Thyroid problems, patients undergoing cancer treatment etc. Please speak to reception for an application form, or to check your eligibility.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.
