PLEASE ALLOW 2 WORKING DAYS FOR BOTH REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS AND MEDICAL CERTIFICATES AND REMEMBER TO TAKE WEEKENDS AND BANK HOLIDAYS INTO ACCOUNT.
Patients on long-term medication can order a repeat prescription in a number of ways:
To maintain quality prescribing we will not accept telephone requests.
Your prescription can be collected from one of the local pharmacies if you have made arrangements with them and have let us know. Please anticipate your next repeat prescription and allow us time to process it before coming to collect it.
Please do not telephone the surgery to enquire if your repeat prescription has been processed. If you come back at the right time it will be ready for you.
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.
Please note that ordering your prescription more than 2 weeks in advance of when it is due will result in request being rejected. If there is a reason for early ordering please specify.
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.
