Repeat Prescription

Please indicate whether you would like to collect your prescription from our reception or which pharmacy you would like the prescription to be sent to for dispensing. If you lose your repeat request sheet there are forms at that you can complete at reception to order your prescription.

You can also do this via the NHS app or Order Online via SystmOnline if you are registered for this system.

Alternatively you can order your prescription with our secure online form

If you are a non-dispensing patient (medication dispensed by the surgery dispensary team) please allow a minimum of 72 working hours. If you are a dispensing patient please allow a minimum of 5 working days.

Did you know we run a free medicine delivery service?

If you live outside Stamford then you are eligible for free delivery if you use our dispensing service. For more information, or to sign up, please speak to a team member or contact us online.


Emergency Supply of Medicines

If you require an emergency supply of medication when the surgery is closed please telephone 111 where the “Out of Hours” service will offer you advice.


Medication Reviews

All patients receiving repeat prescriptions are requested to be reviewed six-monthly to ensure the medicines remain appropriate.

The next review date is printed on the right hand side of your ordering slip and this should be checked periodically to ensure you make an appointment before the review is due.


Prescription 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.
