Requests for repeat prescriptions are made if possible using the attached slips, either posted into the red prescribing box in the health centre main reception foyer (ground floor) or the red box on the counter in the surgery. The box is emptied on a regular basis by the reception staff.

Prescriptions can be taken over the telephone on 0113 4677499 between 10am and 12 noon or 2pm and 4pm. Please have a list of your repeat prescription the dosage and the amount of tablets prescribed. The receptionist will not be able to process repeat prescriptions without all these revelant details.
Occasionally if the patient has no supply of tablets left or will run out within 48 hours, an early prescription may be issued. This will be at the discretion of the receptionist who may discuss this with the doctor.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow 24 hours for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 15 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
Please allow 24 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
