Alternatively, you can request repeat medication by indicating the items you require on the tear-off slip of your prescription, and posting it to us or handing it in at reception. If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you.
WE DO NOT TAKE PRESCRIPTIONS REQUESTS BY PHONE.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication, or three if ordering after 6pm.
On occasion a GP may prescribe you what is known as an 'acute' medication. This is a medication which has not been added to your list of 'Repeat' items, which may be because the GP wants to trial the medication to see what effect it has, or if it is something which is only meant to be used for a short period of time. If you feel that you need a further supply of these medications, please contact the surgery over the phone or via the reception desk, or use the online prescription request form or SystmOnline. In these cases, the request for medication must go to a doctor for review. In some cases they may decide that they need to see you before they can issue a further supply of the medication. After you have made your request, please contact the surgery after 5pm the same day to see whether the doctor is happy to issue the medication, or if they need to see you first.
Note that if you have never had a medication from us before and it is not a repeat item, you will need to see a doctor before it will be issued.

How to apply for a Medical exemption certificate
To apply for a Medical exemption certificate ask your doctor for an FP92A form. Your GP, hospital or service doctor will sign the form to confirm that your statement is correct. At your GP's discretion, a member of the practice who has access to your medical records can also sign the form.
Your certificate will be valid from one month before the date that the NHS Business Authrority receives the application form.
The MedEx lasts for five years and then needs to be renewed. You may receive a reminder that your certificate needs to be renewed. If you don't receive a reminder, it is your responsibility to ensure that it is renewed.
You can find more information about the application process and refunds on the NHS Business Authority's website.
