We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from [go live date]
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
If you are stable on your medication you can ask for a "Batch Prescription". This will allow you to order 6-12 months worth of medication enabling you to call in and collect straight from the pharmacy. This method also allows you to collect multiple months supply should you be going on holiday or working away.

In the interests of safety we do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the phone unless it is an emergency.
Collect from the surgery within 48 hours. Collect from a chemist of your choice within 72 hours.
CHRISTMAS PHARMACY OPENING TIMES:
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 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
Please allow 48 hours for collection at the surgery 72 hours for collection at the pharmacy of your choice, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
