Out of hours emergencies are now the responsibility of NHS 111 who will arrange appropriate further care/advice.  For the Out of hours service please ‘phone 111. If you need immediate urgent medical help, phone 999. GP out of hours appointments have moved from their old base in Chesterton and are now on the Addenbrookes site (Clinic 9, next to A&E).


                     28 Day Prescribing

In line with national prescribing guidelines and local Clinical Commissioning Group recommendations, we are now prescribing for a maximum of 28 days at a time (exceptions apply e.g. holidays). This has been proven to reduce wastage of medicines (£100 million annually) by 15% where this has already been implemented in other parts of the country. The majority of prescriptions have already been for 28 days for some years. As a Practice we are committed to following these recommendations and hope that you will understand the reasoning behind this policy.


For those on regular medication there are 13 x 28 day periods in a year, making it cheaper to purchase a pre-payment certificate than pay per item each month. A prepayment certificate covers any other medications you might need and we would encourage patients to use this wherever possible (unless entitled to maternity or other medical exemption)





Repeat prescriptions should be requested no less than 48 hours in advance by

  • online via the form above (please note you cannot pay online for repeat prescriptions)
  • by fax on 01223 872741
  • forwarding the repeat slip to the dispensary via the village box system which operates on Monday and Thursday in the following villages: Hauxton, Thriplow,   Foxton, Barrington, Haslingfield, Harston, Newton & Wisbey's Yard.  If you would like your medication delivered to any of these boxes, please ask at the Dispensary for a request form to complete. (If you pay for your prescriptions please send the correct money with the request.) 
  • if in urgent need only, telephone 01223 871588 between 11.45-12.15 and  3.30 - 4.00 

        Repeat prescriptions take approx 48 hours to process:

If you request on,

Monday,  for collection Thursday

Tuesday, for collection  Friday

Wednesday, for collection Monday

Thursday for collection Tuesday

Friday for collection Wednesday 

Dispensary patients can obtain their medicines directly from the surgery. We follow good prescribing practice and usually prescribe medication on a monthly basis. If you are entitled to free prescriptions please show appropriate evidence to our dispensary staff. If you pay for prescriptions and need regular medication it is most cost effective to purchase a 'pre-payment certificate' (PPC). People who have to pay for more than 3 prescription items in 3 months, or 12 items in 12 months, could save money by buying a PPC. Information about how to do this on line or over the phone is here - you cannot do this at the dispensary but are welcome to use our free NHS wifi to do this whilst you wait.
