We can accept repeat prescription requests by the slips provided at the surgery, make the request in writing or online.
We can take your requests for repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page To do this we will need to allocate to you a code number (PIN) which is your computer record number. Please attend the reception and tell them that you wish to be able to ask for repeats via e-mail. They will then give you your code number personally.
See details of the agreement you must sign to access this service.
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.
Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed from Shady Lane and three working days from streetly, Please remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 3 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed from Shady Lane and 3 working days if ordered at our Streetly branch. Any problems please telephone the surgery on 0121 389 2222.
