Ordering a Repeat Prescription
Please give as much notice as possible when ordering as we need a minimum of two working days’ notice to process and dispense your prescription request. Some items will need to be ordered from our supplier which adds time to the processing of your prescription.
The current prescription fee is £8.60. The Practice can accept cheques, cash or card payments for the services it provides, including dispensed medication. Please make cheques payable to Elvington Medical Practice.
Our doctors periodically review repeat medications, and may request that you attend an appointment to ensure that all prescribing is safely monitored.
Please note that children under 16 cannot collect prescriptions.
