Prescriptions

If you are receiving medication for an ongoing medical condition that is stable, your doctor will often allow for this to be obtained on a repeat prescription without having to see him.

Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made in the following ways.

  • Submit your computerised printed prescription slip: (this can be found attached to your previous prescription), tick the items you require and place it in the prescription box at the reception, or post it to us.
  • Submit a written request: List clearly the items that you require, including your full name and address, the name of the drug including the strength and dose that you take.  If possible please attach the label from the medication pack to the sheet of paper.
  • Fax: You can fax your request to us on 01623 559943.

Please note, we do not take requests for prescriptions over the phone unless you are housebound or illness prevents you from attending the surgery.

Local Chemists

Please also remember that you can ask you local chemist to request your repeat prescription. You may drop your prescription into your local chemist who will place the order on your behalf with the surgery. Please allow the chemist time to do this for you. If you are ill or housebound – the chemists are also happy to deliver your repeat prescriptions. Call your local chemist to find out if you can use this service.

Medication Reviews

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.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Single charge: £8.60
  • 3 month PPC (no change): £29.10
  • 2 month PPC (no change): £104.00

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
