We are receiving an increasing number of requests from patients requesting early issues/longer duration of repeat medications and requests for one off medicines which were issued in the past for a specific episode of illness.
Our practice is following guidelines from Local Medical Councils across Greater Manchester to not change repeat prescription durations or support patients trying to stockpile as we believe these actions may put a strain on the supply chain and exacerbate any potential shortages.
Please be assured that the practice will continue to ensure patients are provided with their repeat medications when due and requests for any new medications would be decided on an individual basis.
We encourage you to sign up for online access to request a telephone appointment and repeat prescriptions as soon as possible to help us continue to provide you the best possible service and help you to minimise travel and stay safe. Please telephone surgery if you are not signed up already and our care navigators will help to set you up for online access.
If you still decide to collect your prescriptions please can we request you to collect from the reception only between the hours of 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
Please stay at home were possible and stay safe

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 for your request to be processed, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays
Any problems please telephone the surgery.
