St Ann's is able to offer patients the option of ordering repeat medications online.
Due to COVID-19 please do not enter or call the practice to order your medications.
Alternatively please download the Rotherham Health App or post your prescriptions in the red post box on the outside wall.
Regardless of which method you use to request repeat medications we ask that you collect your prescription AFTER 4PM TWO working days after you put in your request.
Patients are now able to have their prescriptions sent directly to the pharmacy of their choice. To use this service please inform the pharmacy you wish to use and they will record your nomination and forward it to the practice.
Please note, this service is not for everyone. If you are on "Controlled Drugs" or your medication changes frequently, this service will not be appropriate for your needs. If in doubt please discuss it with your local pharmacy.
For more information, please click here.
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.
Is now safer & more efficient!
Under the previous system, many patients had reported that they had built up a large stock of unused medicine that they did not request. This could not be stored safely and used within date. The change to how patients/carers now order medication has addressed this serious safety concern.
By ordering medications this way also means that your GP practice will have a clearer picture of the medicines you do and do not use. This will help with your discussions during your medication review.
Finally, it is important that NHS money is used as efficiently as possible. Medicines waste costs the NHS in Rotherham £1.5 million every year! This change will reduce medicines waste, allowing monies to fund other services to improve the health of the people of Rotherham.

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.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
