Please allow 2 working days for a repeat prescription request (please allow longer if ordering through a pharmacy). The white form attached to your computer prescription can be ticked against the items you need, and the form should then be placed in the box in the surgery vestibule.
As you will see from this website we are now also offering the facility to order your repeat prescriptions on-line.
We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the telephone unless you are housebound. If you provide a stamped addressed envelope, we can post your prescription to you.
Your medical condition and medication will be reviewed regularly. Your prescription will show a Medication Review date which will usually be set on your Birthday or 6 months after that to integrate with our Chronic Disease Recall Programme. If the date is overdue when you put in your request the Doctor will need to review your notes before issuing (for patient safety) and will reset the date (this may cause a slight delay in signing) the doctor may add a personalised message advising actions that need to be taken in response to this review. In the unlikely event that this recall date is more than 6months overdue, please bring this to the attention of the reception staff.
Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS)
This is a very exciting development in the NHS we are now linked via a secure transfer of data to the pharmacists and we can send your prescriptions directly to them, there are some exceptions and include some antidepressants and some pain relief medication.
This system could help you if you are on holiday in the UK and have forgotten your medication all you need to do is find a local chemist and note down its name and postcode and providing they are linked to the national framework (computers) we can send them your prescription in an emergency.
If you want your medication to be sent to a pharmacy of your choice just pop into the pharmacy and ask them to sign you up. You do not need to come to the surgery as they will link this to us automatically.
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.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £8.30 whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.65 and a 12 month PPC £105.90.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
