Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:
Your prescription will be ready for collection 36 hours later. Please remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
Claire Oliver is the Lead Dispenser at the Practice and will be happy to help if you have any queries.
The practice can dispense prescriptions for patients living more than 1.6 kilometres from a Pharmacy between the hours of 08:30 and 18:30 Monday to Friday.
Should you require repeat medication urgently when the surgery is closed, or have a query regarding your medication, please call 111 and you will automatically be transferred to the 111 service who will assist 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. If a patient doesn't have a medication review you may only receive a small supply of your prescription and will be asked to book an appointment for a review before you request any further 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.
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 36 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery on 01327 842360.
