If you require medication on repeat prescription we ask you to do this in writing. We provide you with a re-order form along with your prescription. Please tick the required medication and leave the slip in the repeat prescription box in our porch, or in the chemist in Easingwold. You can also send this slip by post, or if the surgery is closed, post it through the letter box. If you do not have your repeat re-order slip, please write an order including the drug, strength, dosage and quantity.
Alternatively you can register with our online service and order your prescription online via the link at the top of this page. Click here for information about how to register for this service.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

Dispensary - Collections
All requests require 3 working days notice to allow us to process the paperwork, and, where applicable, order the medication from our supplier. If you are posting your request or leaving it at the chemist, please allow extra time to allow it to arrive on our premises.
Any patient who lives more than 1 mile from a pharmacy can have their medicine dispensed at the Surgery Dispensary. For more information, please see our leaflet below
Please note that our dispensary is closed between 12:30 and 14:00.
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.

NHS HRT Pre-payment Certificate
Did you know you can now purchase an HRT Exemption Certificate? A one-off payment of £19.30 (the equivalent of 2 prescription fees) can cover your HRT prescriptions for an entire year! Not all HRT medications are covered, but there are currently 43 medications on the list. For more information and to buy the exemption, please visit https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/help-nhs-prescription-costs/nhs-hormone-replacement-therapy-prescription-prepayment-certificate-hrt-ppc
If you already have a prescription pre-payment certificate or any other exemption, then these medications will be covered by this, and you do not need to purchase another exemption alongside your pre-existing one.
Please note, this exemption can not be purchased at the surgery.
We have a team of pharmacists who work for the surgery undertaking a lot of our medication reviews and queries. They work remotely and so contact patients by telephone. Their hours include evenings and weekends so may phone during 'unusual' hours. If you would like to discuss your medication, please contact the surgery and arrange an appointment with a member of this team.
