Repeat Prescriptions

Our policy states that repeat prescriptions must be placed in writing and not taken over the telephone.

You can request your repeat prescription by:

  • Emailing your full name, date of birth and prescription request to bexleymedicalgroup@nhs.net
  • Returning to the Practice your repeat prescription slip
  • Via online services

Your request will be actioned by the Practice within 48 hours and sent to your nominated Pharmacy electronically.

We suggest that you allow 5 working days for your request to be fully processed through all of the channels that it must go through.

Electronic Prescription Service

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 24/06/2020. Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.Read more about EPS on the NHS website.

Prescriptions 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.

NHS Charges

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 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre payment certificate.
