Please consider registering for patient access which allows you to request repeat prescriptions online. It will give you a list of your repeat medication which you just need to click and send. This is integrated into your patient record and helps us to process your prescription request easily.

How you can request a prescription:
- Online - please see the Patient Access Online Services page for more information.
- In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception with the required items clearly ticked.
- By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope and we will post it back to you.
- From your pharmacy - if you use a regular pharmacy you can ask them to request your prescription for you; they will then also collect it.
Please note that Receptionists are unable to take a prescription request over the phone
For those on regular medication, we are happy to give repeat prescriptions. Please use the computerised copy of your last prescription; just tick the items required and hand it in. Please allow two working days.
You may collect from the surgery or add a stamped addressed envelope. If you ask your pharmacy, you can also be set up for prescriptions to go electronically to them via the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS).
Please allow extra time at holiday periods i.e. Christmas, Easter etc.
We try to provide the most appropriate and the most cost-effective medication to our patients. In this endeavour we are guided by the Medicine Management Team at Bexley CCG.

EPS (Electronic Prescription service)
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service where the surgery can send your prescription electronically to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
- Instead of visiting your GP practice to collect a paper prescription, your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose
- You will have more choice about where to collect your medicines from – a pharmacy near to home or work
- You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock, they can be ordered in ready for you.
If you combine this with GP online services you can also order your prescription at anytime on a smartphone/tablet device.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
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 pre payment certificate.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
