Prescriptions

Prescriptions issued by our team can be obtained either from the dispensary at our Moulton Surgery site, if we can provide you with this service.

Except for some eligible patients, the NHS charges a prescription fee of £8.80 per medicine.

In some cases we might start you on a repeat prescription, which means a medication that you need to continue to take on a regular basis.  As well as your first prescription you will be given a repeat prescription slip, which is attached to the prescription, that enables you to order more of the medicine when you have only one week supply of your medicine left.  This will be explained to you at the time.

To order a repeat prescription you should complete the repeat prescription slip and return it to the surgery.  You should allow 72 working hours for your prescription to be ready, 96 working hours if your prescription is being forwarded to a chemist.  You can also order your repeat prescription online if you have registered for this service with our Patient Services team.  We are unable to accept requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone.

Please do not request medicines that are not on your repeat prescription in writing.  A doctor will always need to discuss the request with you so please book a telephone consultation with the doctor you usually see.
