Changes to Prescription Ordering
The online Prescribtion Ordering service through Coventry & Rugby CCG will be stopping in March 2023, and until then they are only taking repeat prescription requests over the phone.
Patients can use the NHS app to order medication or, if you have a long list of meds, then either ordering via the AccuRx form or dropping a paper list to the surgery will be the best option. Patients can also send a request via the website or by email to the surgery email@example.com.
If you think you need a new prescription, please speak to your doctor.
To request a repeat prescription, please fill in the following information on this page here.
Please allow at least 48 hours before visiting your collection point.
We can only process requests for repeat prescriptions – if you require a new medication you will need to book an appointment or speak to one of our doctors on the telephone.

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
