Patients on long-term medication can use the repeat slip attached to their last prescriprion to re-order. Simply tick the required items and forward it to the surgery using the designated drop box in the entrance
Please note that prescriptions cannot be done over the phone. It is the patient's responsibilty to order medication before it runs out. To do this you need to tick your repeat section (this is normally attached to your actual prescription) and place it in the drop box. Please allow 48 hours for this to be processed.
Patient's should ideally also sign up with a pharmacy of your choice for the Electronic Prescribing Service, known as EPS This agreement will allow the practice to send you monthly prescriptions directly to the nominated pharmacy. Please visit one of you local pharmacies or speak to a member of the reception team for further information
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and 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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
