Ordering your medication

We need at least two working days notice to process your repeat prescription.


 Repeat prescriptions can be ordered by:

  • Post. Your prescription should be posted to one of the surgery addresses
  • Hand. You can hand in your request at Sleights or Sandsend
  • Online. Please ask at the reception desk about ordering prescriptions online. If you already have an online account click the image below to be taken to the correct page.  





  • Telephone. You can also order your prescriptions by telephone. You can do this by calling Sleights Surgery on 01947 811500 or Sandsend on 01947 894948. We discourage you to order your prescriptions over the telephone as it increases potential errors and practice workload.




As a dispensing practice we are able to offer dispensing to patients living more than one mile from a pharmacy. We offer dispensing at both Churchfield and Sandsend surgeries. Please inform reception/dispensary of your preferred collection place.


Written prescriptions


These can be collected, sent to you by post (please supply a self addressed stamped envelope), or you can arrange with one of the local pharmacies for collection on your behalf.



Electronic Prescriptions

Electronic prescriptions are relatively new to the practice. It may save you unneccesary trips to the surgery. They make it possible for your prescriptions to be sent electronically to a pharmacy or dispenser of your choice. The place that you choose to recieve your prescriptions is  called a nomination. This means you'll no longer have to collect a paper repeat prescription from your GP practice and you can go straight to the nominated pharmacy or dispenser to pick up your medicines or medical appliances.

Because your pharmacist has already received your electronic prescription, they may be able to prepare your items in advance, so you just have to pick it up with no extra wait. However, this depends on the capacity of pharmacists on the day, and may not be possible all the time. 

If you would like more information on electronic prescriptions, click here for a leaflet.




From April 2019, the price of an NHS prescription is £9.00 per item. If you are getting more than 14 items on prescription per year, a prepayment certificate would help you to save money on your prescription charges. If you feel you would benefit from a prepayment certificate,you can apply online by following http://www.nhs.uk/NHSEngland/Healthcosts/Pages/PPC.aspx  or come into the surgery for advice/ leaflets.
