Some patients who are on regular medicines may be issued with repeat prescriptions without necessarily consulting a Doctor every time.
When repeat prescriptions are collected a computer print out of your medicines will be attached and should be filled in when ordering next time.
You can also have your prescriptions sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy. Ask reception to set this up for you.
A Doctor will still need to see you at least once a year to review your medication. This review date is at the bottom of your repeat prescription slip. If you come to reception we can often do your prescription while you wait if your checks are up to date and the drugs are due. If you leave your prescription with us please allow 24 hours for collection of your new prescription.
Local chemists offer a prescription collection service from our surgery. This saves you at least one trip to the surgery and you can go directly to the chemist for your medications. Please discuss with your nearest chemist.
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 24 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
