Whitworth Chemists has a pharmacy on the Layton Medical Centre site which is open during normal surgery hours where patients can have their prescription dispensed.
Whitworth Chemists will also order your prescription for you and deliver it free of charge.
If you take medication on a long- term basis, you can drop off your request slip for a repeat prescription at the surgery, using one of the 2 boxes in the reception area (on and opposite the reception desk). Please note repeat prescription requests should usually be submitted just a few days before your medication runs out, unless there are special circumstances (e.g. holidays, lost medication) in which case please add an explanatory note to your request.
In addition, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
Your prescription will be available for you to pick up 48 hours after they have been ordered. Please note we do not accept prescription requests over 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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
