Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
Please make your requests as clear and concise as possible, giving the name of the medication you are taking, the dose, the amount you take a day ands the total amount you have normally per prescription. All prescritpions are computerised and are checked by the doctor so please allow 48 hours for the prescription to be ready
Please not we do not take repeat prescription requests over the phone. This is due to the risk of errors using this method.
Medication Reviews-Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.
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
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.
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.
