    You must allow 72 hours for the surgery to safely prepare your repeat prescription.

    If you have a query about your prescription request then please email us with your query using the prescription ordering email address prescriptions.cornerplacesurgery@nhs.netAlternatively, you can call us on the prescriptions query line (option 4) between the hours of 08:30-09:30 and 15:00-16:00.

    Avoid Delays - If you are requesting a medication that is not on your regular list, or a medication that you have not had for some time, or you are requesting a medication early, please give a reason for your request.

    Please note the above does not include the time it takes for your pharmacy to get your items ready. All pharmacies vary in the time they take to dispense your medication. You will need to check this with your nominated pharmacy.

     

    The preferred ways of ordering are as follows (in order of most preferred):

    1. Via the NHS App: https://www.nhs.uk/using-the-nhs/nhs-services/the-nhs-app/
      Please follow the directions via the above web link. Please note it may take a few days to initially get registered, but once registered you will be able to easily and quickly order your medications as well as change your nominated pharmacy if required. 
       
    2. Via online services: https://www.patientaccess.com/
      Please follow the above link to login or register for online services, but note you will also need to come into the surgery with 2 forms of ID before this can be set up.
      Please note the NHS App is preferred over online services as it offers the same services, but you are able to register without having to come into the surgery with 2 forms of ID. ***NOTE we are not currently accepting new registrations for patient access as patients should not be coming into the surgery unless you have a booked appointment. ***
       
    3. Via email:  prescriptions.cornerplacesurgery@nhs.net
      Please send your medication request to the above email address with the following information:
      Full Name:
      Date of Birth:
      Address:
      Medication name, dose, frequency & quantity
      (For each medication requested)
      Any additional comments (such as your nominated pharmacy, why you are requesting a medication early or a medication which you have not had for some time)
       
    4. Via paper request: You can either tick the items you require on your repeat list or fill in a white request form in the reception foyer. This should then be dropped into the prescription post box (can be access from the outside of the building or just inside the reception foyer).

    Please also note we are unable to accept prescription requests from third parties, which includes pharmacies. If you order your medications via a pharmacy App or website then we will not be able to accept this.

  • Prescription prepayment certificates

    If you need more than 13 prescribed medicines in a year, you will save money with this.

    A single prescription is £9.15, a 3 month prepayment is £29.65 and a 12 month prepayment is £105.90.

    Click on Prescription Prepayment Application and follow the application process at the bottom of the page.

     

  • Over The Counter Medication

    Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns, even if you qualify for free prescriptions.

    Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community. The team of health professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns and if your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they’ll ensure you get the care you need. Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
