28 day Prescriptions

Following national guidance, we are changing our prescription policy to only prescribe medicines for a maximum of 28 days at a time.

The benefits are:

  1. More opportunity to review your medicines regularly, which is especially important for long term conditions such as diabetes.
  2. Companies manufacture most medicines in 28 day packs. These have patient leaflets inside and ideally they should be supplied to you as a complete pack. These packs also allow you to check that you have taken all your medication.
  3. Less waste by ensuring that when medicines are stopped/or changed, only the remainder of the 28 day pack will be discarded.

If you have to pay for your prescriptions, you may be able to save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate.

For more information on prepayment certificates, contact the NHS Business Services Authority on 0845 850 0030 or visit

Repeat Dispensing

This is a new way of getting your medicines without having to ask the surgery for a prescription each time.

We will give you up to twelve prescriptions at a time that will be sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy. You can then collect your prescriptions form the pharmacist, without having to come to the surgery.

Your pharmacist will inform you when you have been given you last prescription form the ‘batch’ issued by the surgery, and at that point, you will be asked to contact the surgery for a medication review, this can be done by telephone.

Once you have had your medication review, a further ‘batch’ of prescriptions will be sent to your pharmacy for them to dispense to you.

Please ask your pharmacist for further advice and guidance

Thank you
