These are obtainable after 2.30pm, three whole working days following our receipt of the prescription - Monday to Friday only (Saturday and Sunday not included).
Please note, if the repeat prescriptions are either dropped off or sent to the chemist, then please allow an extra day.
They can be posted to you providing you enclose a stamped addressed envelope with your request. You will receive a computerised sheet listing your medication. Please tick which items are required then hand in to reception, post in the yellow box in the foyer or when the surgery is closed post through the letterbox at the front of the building.
Please ensure the name of your Doctor is at the top of the prescription. We regret that requests for routine repeat prescriptions cannot be accepted over the telephone, but faxed requests are acceptable.
There is a scheme in place whereby prescriptions can be collected directly from some local pharmacies, reducing the number of visits you need to make to the surgery. Please ask at your local pharmacy for further details.Patients with chronic disease, ie diabetes, high blood pressure and asthma are advised to have check-ups once a year. If you have any concerns, please make an appointment to see the nurse.All patients taking the contraceptive pill should have consultations every six months with either the doctor or practice nurse. Repeat prescriptions are not issued without patients being seen.
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 14 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
If you require your private prescription to be issued on a NHS prescription you must book an appointment with the Doctor first.
Your Doctor may not issue the same drug and it is at their discretion what they prescribe.
Please allow three WHOLE working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
