Patients on regular medication may make a request for their medication in the following way:
If you would like your prescription to be posted back to you, please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.
Please allow 2 working days for your request to be processed from the day we receive it. Allow a further three days for postage.
Please do not leave your medication until you run out. Remember that your medication is your responsibility.
Any uncollected repeat prescription will be destroyed after three months. For safety and confidentiality reasons we do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. Appointments / telephone consultations should not be made for repeat prescriptions.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your 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 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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
