Online Patient Access
To save you time have you considered registering for online Patient Access?
This will enable you to book GP appointments, order repeat prescriptions and view certain items of your medical record.
To register you will need to see Reception with your photo id.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
We regret that no prescription requests are taken over the telephone.
With effect from 1st December 2017 we require three working days' notice so please do not let your medicines run out. It is not possible to process your request while you wait. Prescription requests received on Fridays will not be ready until the following Wednesday afternoon.
Doctors have been asked not to prescribe medicines for minor ailments like paracetamol or ibuprofen (although patients who need these drugs in regular quantities can continue to get them on repeat prescriptions). These medicines can be bought from a pharmacy or supermarket. This includes patients who get FREE prescriptions.

The patient information leaflet below also provides more information along with the list of minor ailments:
Over the Counter Medicines
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
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 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 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
