Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways
New users are required to register for online services. This system enables you to see a copy of the current repeat medication that has been authorised for you by the doctor and for which you have not yet used the quota of issues before the doctor needs to review your medication
By Hand - using the reverse sheet of your prescription, drop your request in to the basket on our Reception Desk during opening hours only
By Faxing - your request on 0161 762 1522 - 24/7 access
By Posting your request form - you may leave a supply of stamped addressed envelopes with Reception and we will post your prescription to you
By contacting your regular pharmacy - ask about their repeat prescription ordering service Please allow 2 full working days for your prescription to be ready for collection at the surgery after 3:00 pm. Please note that we can only accept requests for medication that has been previously agreed by the doctor as suitable for repeat prescription
This service is available if you are taking regular medication. Instead of ordering your prescription on a monthly basis, you would receive prescriptions for up to 6 month. Please note some medications may not be suitable for this service. If you would like further information please contact Reception.
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, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery. Thank You for using the online service.
