As of 1st April 2019, GABAPENTIN and PREGABALIN are being classified as Class 3 CONTROLLED DRUGS.

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.
Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions by handing in the tear-off slip attached to their last prescription to the surgery reception or nominated chemist. On-site Pharmacy can help you regarding your repeat prescriptions and they can offer a home delivery service if required.
ON-LINE PRESCRIPTIONS can be requested by e-mailing the in-house Pharmacy - email@example.com, where your repeat slip can be 'ticked, scanned and attached'. It would be taken as your consent for repeat medication and medicines can be collected at the pharmacy within 48 hours of this request.
Please note we do not accept requests over the telephone
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 two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and 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
