Prescriptions

Visit our prescriptions room where you will be able to find your nearest pharmacies, request or review your medication and register for electronic prescribing.

Repeat prescription slips are also issued to patients who take regular medication and these should be posted with a stamped addressed envelope or given in at reception with items which are required marked with a tick.

If you have more than one repeat prescription, try to order all your items together. 3 working days notice is required from the time the request has been deposited to the time when the medication is available for collection. We may ask you to make an appointment to see the doctor to review your medication from time to time.

Please check the collection schedule for your repeat prescription.

You can download and print off a repeat prescription request form. You will need to either submit it at your usual branch or fax it to us:

Mitcham – 0208 646 7632
Tooting – 0208 682 4376

You can also email it to us at mitcham.medicalcentre@nhs.net (Please note it will take 3 working days for your request to be processed from the time we have received your request.)

Prescriptions 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.

Please allow 3 working days, excluding weekends and bank holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please contact the surgery.
