Repeat Prescriptions

The Practice offers several ways in which to request repeat prescriptions.

You can deliver or post your Repeat Prescription Form to the Medical Centre, or fax the request on 0116 277 2416.  Requests for repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone.

For the convenience of those patients delivering their repeat requests during Medical Centre opening times we have provided a post box at the reception desk.

  • Please allow a clear forty eight hours or two clear working days for your prescription to be processed

  • If you have more than one repeat prescription please try and order all your items together

  • Tick which items on the request slip you require

  • You can collect your prescription from the Medical Centre, or we can post it to your home address if you have provided a stamped addressed envelope.  You may also take advantage of the prescription service run by local chemists – please ask them for details.

The responsibility for collecting prescriptions rests with the patient.  The Practice has a policy to destroy all uncollected prescriptions after six weeks.

You will need to come to the surgery in person with a form of photographic ID (driving licence, passport etc.). You will then be issued a PIN number to use the online service.

Prescription Charges

People in the following categories are automatically exempt from prescription charges: children under 16, under 19 and in full-time education and all patients over 60 years of age.  Other exemption categories are listed on the reverse of the prescription form.

‘SEASON TICKETS’
It is sometimes worthwhile buying a season ticket for pre-payment of prescription charges.  You should speak with your Pharmacist about this.
