If you need a repeat prescription, you can telephone the surgery on 0191 271 9030, or you can order in person at reception. Prescription line is open from 1.30pm - 3pm on weekdays. Please indicate each item you need.
Your repeat prescription will be ready in 48 working hours.
If you do need repeat prescriptions the doctor will review them with you at least once a year, to make sure they are still necessary.
Please note that the receptionists are unable to add or alter anything on your repeat prescription, so if you do want to make any changes, be sure to speak to a doctor first. You may find a telephone appointment suitable.
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 14 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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
