How to get a prescription

If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. Our practice nurse/nurse practitioner can also issue prescriptions for common ailments. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation. Please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication. 

Our on site pharmacy (Lloyds) is able to provide advice and treatment for a range of minor ailments. Treatment is free if you are eligible for free prescriptions under the NHS, without having to see a doctor.
