**COVID -19** - if you need to drop off a prescription request to the practice please note: from 31.7.2020 you will need to post your request through the letter box at the FRONT door. We will NOT be accepting prescription drop off at the rear entry from this date. Thank you.
If you are receiving regular treatment the doctor may agree to let you have a prescription without seeing you.
From 1st October 2020 we will no longer be accepting telephone prescription requests - please order your prescription on line (ask reception for registration information) or via our email - email@example.com
You can request a repeat prescription by:-
Please quote your Patient Number or NHS Number.
Requests made before 12:00 will be ready for collection after 17:00 the next working day.
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.
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.
