From time to time you will be asked to see the GP or Nurse Practitioner for a review of your medication.

Our receptionists are no longer able to take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. If this causes you difficulty please let us know.

Requests for repeat prescriptions can also be faxed to the surgery on 0118 9272633. Please remember to include your name and date of birth on faxed requests.

Or alternatively you can email your prescription to woodley.surgery@nhs.net. Please note that this account is not constantly monitored and must only be used for prescription requests. If you have a general enquiry please contact the surgery on 0118 9697307.

All repeat prescriptions require notice of 3 working days.

Please make sure you have enough medication to cover holiday times.

We may not be able to issue a repeat prescription without adequate notice.

If you need to call us regarding a query with your prescription, please note we do not take any calls regarding prescriptions before 10am.

If you are calling to check if your prescription has been done please call your chemist first to check with them if they have received it.

Prescription Charges and Exemptions

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.
