When to Order your Repeat Prescription

Please order your next prescription when you have 1 – 2 weeks of medication left. This allows us time to generate the prescription, get it signed and be ready for your collection here at the surgery or at the chemist of your choice. This also allows time if the doctor wishes to speak or see you regarding your medication.

Electronic Prescription Service

We are now participating in the NHS Electronic Prescription Service (EPS). This means we can send your prescription electronically to the chemist of your choice. This will save time and you do not have to visit the surgery to collect your prescription. You will need to register with the pharmacy of your choice.

Prescription 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.

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  or ask your local Pharmacy for more information

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.
