From Wednesday 30th September we are changing the way you order your repeat prescription. Patients will call the dedicated Medicine Order Line to speak to an experienced health professional when needing to reorder a repeat prescription. Patients will still be able to order their repeat medication online. If you collect your medication from South Wingfield or Holloway dispensary you will continue to order your medication through our dispensary or online.
This will free up our telephone lines and reduce call waiting time.
Once you have made the telephone call your prescription will be authorised by your usual GP and will then be sent to the pharmacy of your choice within two working days. In exceptional circumstances it may be collected from your GP practice if preferred. Please allow additional time for the pharmacy to get your prescription ready for you. If you have an existing arrangement with your pharmacy to deliver your prescription please speak with them to ensure this will continue.
If you are a dispensing patient you can request your repeat prescriptions by ringing either of the Dispensaries during opening hours or by filling in the request form on this website.
South Wingfield – 01773 831909
Holloway – 01629 534808
Patients in the following categories are automatically exempt from prescription charges: children under 16, under 19 and in full-time education, women and men over 60 and those patients who have exemption certificates, etc. You will be asked by our Dispensers to provide proof of exemption.
You will be required to see the Doctor for periodic review.

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.
