ORDER REPEAT MEDICATIONS

 

Where possible we would ask you to sign up to Patient Access to order your repeat prescriptions.

During this time you can also if needed call the practice on 01675 442510 and request your prescription or drop the request through the letter box on the side door.

All prescriptions are forwarded electronically to your nominated pharmacy via the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS) rather than you needing to collect a paper prescription from the surgery. Please see  more information regarding EPS at the the following link https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/prescriptions-and-pharmacies/electronic-prescriptions/ or visiting your local pharmacy.

All patients having repeat prescriptions will be asked to see a doctor from time to time to monitor their treatment.

When ordering please remember to:

  • Please provide the exact drug names wherever possible.

  • Please allow 48 hours for the practice to process your prescription requests

  • Please allow extra time at weekends and bank holidays.

  • Specialist Drug Monitoring - Patients on specialist prescribed medication, eg Warfarin and Methotrexate, and who require regular monitoring will be seen by appointment for review by the doctor.

  • Prescriptions can now be sent to a pharmacy of your choice via the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS).  Just make our reception team or the pharmacy aware of your choice. 

Prescription charges

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. Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
