Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions. Each time a repeat prescription is written, a new request slip is produced for you to make your next request for regular medication.
To send a request you can:
- Post in the Request: please use your normal repeat slip and send to the surgery. You need to enclose SAE if you wish to have it posted back.
- Come To The Surgery: Once the slip has been filled in you can come into the surgery reception and hand it in or post it in the repeat prescription box.
- Online: You can order your repeat prescriptions via the link at the top of this page
- NHS App: You can use the NHS App to reorder your prescriptions. You can find further details about the App here:
We are sorry but we cannot accept telephone prescription requests.
How do I use the online service?
If you don't have a login username/password yet, all you need to do is drop in to one of our branches with 2 forms of ID, one containing a photograph of yourself and one containing proof of your home address. Our receptionists will give you a form to fill in and once completed, your login details will then be posted to you, so that you can re-order repeat prescriptions online.
Once the request has been received, you must currently allow 7 working days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays) before you collect your prescription. We hope to get back to our usual 3 working day standard as soon as we can.
Please read the repeat slip carefully. We may sometimes put special information on it for you.
We operate a dispensing service for patients registered at Bradninch, Uffculme and Sampford Peverell.
Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.65
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
- 3-month PPC: £31.25
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 PPC.
- Telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
