Do not delay getting help if you're worried. Trust your instincts.

This will help the NHS plan its response to coronavirus by showing where the virus is spreading and how it affects people.
As of 1st April 2019, GABAPENTIN and PREGABALIN are being classified as Class 3 CONTROLLED DRUGS. You will need to bring photo ID with you to collect your Gabapentin and Pregabalin prescription from the Practice or Pharmacy. If you would like a representative to collect on your behalf, you will need to give your written permission (signed and dated) and we will need photo ID from them.
We accept requests for repeat prescriptions by post (an SAE is required if you need the prescription posted back to you), via the form on this website or by personal visits to the surgery where the request must be in writing. We do not accept them by telephone, unless the patient is house bound.
Repeat prescriptions are issued at the doctor's discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment.
Local pharmacies will often collect prescriptions from the surgery on behalf of the patient, prepare the medication and have it ready for collection by the patient. Some pharmacies will deliver to the homes of the housebound, disabled or elderly patients.
It is usually a simple arrangement to join the practice's repeat prescription service, with, of course, the doctor's approval. The patient has to fill in a form authorising the pharmacist to collect prescriptions from the surgery. This form is held by the surgery's administration office and is valid until the doctor needs to review the patient's medication.
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.
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.
