Repeat prescriptions

Where possible we would ask you to sign up to either the NHS APP or Patient Access to order your repeat prescriptions. You can also if needed call the practice on 0121 445 1704 and leave a message on the prescriptions line or drop your request in to the post box.

All prescriptions are forwarded electronically to your nominated pharmacy via the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) rather than you needing to collect a paper prescription from the surgery. Please see  more information regarding EPS at the the following link https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/prescriptions-and-pharmacies/electronic-prescriptions/ or visiting your local pharmacy.

All patients having repeat prescriptions will be asked to see a doctor from time to time to monitor their treatment.

When ordering please remember to:

  • Please provide the exact drug names wherever possible.
  • Please allow 72 hours for the practice to process your prescription requests
  • Please allow extra time at weekends and bank holidays.
  • All Prescriptions are now be sent to a pharmacy of your choice via the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS). Please visit the pharmacy that you would like to collect your prescription from and ask to register with them to use the EPS service.

Prescription charges

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. Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
