You can now request repeat prescription items online. Please currently allow 5 working days before collection.
If you normally collect your prescriptions from one of the chemists, they will be sent down as usual.
If you normally have your prescriptions dispensed then currently this is only available for collection at either Padstow or St Columb Major Surgery.
If you are taking regular medications your doctor will give you a repeat prescription form attached to your original prescription. The receptionist will explain how to use this if your not sure.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
Please give 5 days notice when requesting repeat prescriptions.
Due to the rural nature of the practice we are able to dispense medicines for many patients at our surgeries. The doctor or receptionist will tell you if you may collect your medicines at the surgery, or the chemist. There are chemists’ shops in St Columb Major and Padstow.
Please check the Surgery opening times page to see when the Dispensary is open.
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 14 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 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
