Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
Please note we cannot accept prescription requests by telephone.
If you require your prescription earlier than the date it is due, please state the reason why to prevent any unnecessary delay.
A medication review now consisits of an initial assessment with a Healthcare Assistant who will carry out a blood test if required for your annual review, any other checks i.e. blood pressure, foot check, height and weight etc. that are needed. The Healthcare Assistant will then make you a second appointment if necessary (depending on your medication and medical conditions) to complete your annual medication review with a practice nurse. This appointment will be made for a later date to allow for any blood test results to be available to the nurse at this appointment.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Unless you have made alternative arrangements with a pharmacy your prescription will be available at the surgery after 14:00.
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 a reasonable charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
