It is also possible to collect prescriptions directly from one of the following:
Please fill in one of the registration forms available either at the pharmacies or in the surgery. Once your prescription has been processed the selected pharmacy can collect it from the surgery.

Any patient prescribed a regular medication should have their medicines reviewed on a regular basis. A medication review is a meeting to focus on your medicines and needs to occur at least annually.
Most commonly this is done in a confidential manner with your GP. There may be changes you want to suggest, worries that are bothering you or questions that you want to have answered about your medications.
Additionally, your GP may also have questions or changes to discuss with you. A record to say the meeting took place and any changes agreed to as a result will be put into your medical notes.
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
