Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions by using the repeat slip, ticking the items required and posting the slip into the provided box in reception.
Requests can also be made by telephone on 01709 373371 after 1pm
Alternatively you can now order online. Simply follow the link at the top of this page to complete a one-off registration.
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.
It is important that you attend these reviews when requested to do so.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
We NO LONGER accept any repeat prescription requests from community pharmacies on behalf of patients. Patients (or their carer, nominated family member/friend) will have to order repeat prescriptions directly from the GP practice themselves. Collection of prescriptions from GP practices by community pharmacies on behalf of patients will not be affected.
The practices made/making this change, with full support of NHS Rotherham CCG, have carefully considered all options, engaged extensively with key stakeholders(patients, carers, patient participation groups and voluntary groups)
If you, or someone you care for, use the same medicines on a daily basis (ie regularly) you may be able to benefit from using the NHS electronic repeat dispensing service the practice offers to suitable patients. This service means you wont have to order your repeat prescription from the GP practice every time you need more medicine. Just collect your dispensed medication from your nominated community pharmacy.
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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
