As a surgery we are trying to reduce the burden on patients and so we have a pharmacy located on our ground floor should patients wish to have this as their pharmacy of choice, this may speed up the process of collection of prescriptions.
Patients on long term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
Online - see our reception team for your log on and password. Then click on the link at the top of this page.
By Hand - please give a clear written request to reception.
By Post - please include a stamped addressed envelope with your request.
Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
When a patient requests a prescription by hand and by post they must allow a minimum of 2 working days for the request to be processed.
Please note that we are unable to process repeat prescription requests over the telephone.
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 Charges and Exemptions
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.
Prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) are available in England and they can save you money.
NHS prescription costs
The current prescription charge is £9.15 per item (£16.80 per pair of elastic hosiery).
A three monthly PPC is £29.65 and could save you money if you need more than three prescribed items in three months.
A 12-month certificate is £105.90 and could save you money if you need more than 12 prescribed items in a year.
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
