Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Patients whose long-term medication has been approved on a repeat prescription basis should therefore order in one of the following ways:

  • Online - via the link at the top of this page.
    (New users are required to complete a simple one-off registration, please telephone us to receive your access code)
  • By post - send in your request with a stamped self-addressed envelope to Green Lane Medical Centre, 15 Green Lane, Tuebrook, Liverpool, L13 7DY
  • In person - use the box at the front of the surgery building, with your repeat slip having clearly marked the required items.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Due to high demand we are unable to take phone calls to check if your prescription is ready. The surgery does not take repeat prescriptions over the phone except for vulnerable patients.

For those of our patients who have received a shielding letter, we are now accepting prescription requests by telephone. Shielded patients may call us on 0151 228 9101.

Due to the coronavirus crisis we would encourage patients to please consider registering for online services.

We have now suspended the previous requirement for you to attend surgery to in order to register for electronic prescriptions.

Simply call surgery on 0151 228 9101 and we shall issue you with the necessary code.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions. This may be deferred due to COVID-19.

NHS Charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.15
