You can order prescriptions online by clicking the link on the home page. You will need to call in to surgery to request patient access log in details, and bring photo ID. On there you will also be able to book appointments with our nurses for blood tests and blood pressure checks and also have access to brief summary of your records.
If you require a repeat prescription, please place your request slip in the box on the reception desk or ring the prescription order line on 0114 372 3333, lines open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm (excluding public holidays)
Prescriptions can also be requested by post, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope, or online. Please allow 2 working days for your request to be processed. You may be asked to attend the surgery for a review with a doctor, nurse or pharmacist before your prescription can be issued.
If you are taking regular medication, please ask about the repeat dispensing scheme which allows you to collect your monthly medication directly from the pharmacy.

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
