Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions. For medico-legal reasons we cannot take prescription requests over the telephone.
Please allow five full working days (excluding weekends/public holidays). Unless you ask us to keep it at the surgery it will be sent to one of our nominated chemists, Purton - Lloyds Pharmacy, Cricklade - Boots Pharmacy.
We are now able to offer an E-mail repeat prescription service to patients 16 years or over.
Please ask the receptionist for a registration form or download the form.
Please note due to patient confidentiality we require proof of identitication when you collect your pin numbers from the surgery. You will need to attend in person to collect this information. We are unable to release this information to anyone else.
Please note this service is only available for medications which are displayed for recent repeat prescriptions. Medications not set up by the GP as a repeat, or which has not been issued for some time (or has been discontinued by the GP) cannot be processed in this way.
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 from 1st April 2019.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

You could save money by buying a pre-payment certificate (PPC). To see if you are entitled information can be obtained from main post offices, some pharmacists and GP surgeries.
