We are a dispensing practice.  Both the Snaith and Rawcliffe surgeries have their own dispensary.  Under NHS regulations we are only allowed to dispense medicines to patients who live more than one mile from a chemist.

We offer a home delivery service for prescriptions for eligible patients. Please contact Reception to discuss your requirements.

Ordering repeat prescriptions

The easiest ways to order repeat prescriptions are:

In line with national policy we will only prescribe one month’s supply of medication at a time, with the exception of the contraceptive pill and hormone replacement therapy.

Repeat prescription requests for dispensing patients

Prescription requests are processed within 3 working days. You will receive a text message or phone call once your medication is ready to collect. 

Prescription charges are payable on collection of your medicines.  We accept cash and debit card as payment.  If you are exempt from paying prescription charges you will be asked for proof of exemption.

Repeat prescriptions requests for non-dispensing patients

Prescription requests are processed within 2 working days. Please Allow time for your nominated Pharmacy to prepare your medication before presenting to collect it.

You will need to choose a pharmacy to collect your prescription from. We call this nominating a pharmacy.

You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time:

  • On the app or website where you order repeat prescriptions
  • At your GP practice
  • At any pharmacy that accepts repeat prescriptions

Questions about your prescription

If you have questions about your medicine, your local pharmacists can answer these. They can also answer questions on medicines you can buy without a prescription.

The NHS website has information on how your medicine works, how and when to take it, possible side effects and answers to your common questions.

Go to Medicines A to Z on the NHS website.

Medication reviews

If you have a repeat prescription, we may ask you to come in for a regular review. We will be in touch when you need to come in for a review.

Prescription charges

What to do with old medicines

Take it to the pharmacy you got it from or bring it in to the surgery. Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
