Patients on long-term medication and approved for repeat prescriptions can place orders in the following ways:
On Line - you will need to obtain a pin number from reception in order to allow you access to this facility.
By telephone - this is a telephone answering service. Be ready to give your name, patient ID and the name and dosage of the drugs you require.
In person - drop your repeat slip in at reception (or ask reception for a form) with the required items clearly marked.
By post - send it in with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
Patients unable to collect their prescription on weekdays may delegate a chemist of their choice to collect on their behalf. The medicines can then be collected direct from the chemist. You must arrange this with the chemist yourself.
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.
Prescriptions are normally ready for collection after two working days. Please remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 15 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 at least 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
