"It will take 2 full working days from date of your request to process your prescription”
“if you request prescriptions on line you may get a message saying your request is rejected. Please note this may not be the case.
If your request has been rejected for any reason we will attempt to contact you. Please ensure we have an up to date contact number for you.
AS OF THURSDAY 1ST FEBRUARY 2018 THE PRESCRIPTION LINE WILL CHANGE TO ANSWERPHONE ONLY.
The practice will only accept orders for prescriptions from you or your carer in the following ways:
We review repeat prescriptions every 12 months but in some cases it may be less than this according to the instructions of your doctor. When you are due for a review this will be highlighted on your prescription. Some records and most repeat prescriptions are computerised.
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.
For details of precription charges and/ or prepayment (PPC) charges, please contact your usual pharmacy.
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.
From the 3rd April 2019, prescriptions for controlled drugs will be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy. If you do not have a nominated pharmacy, the prescription will be printed and will require collection from the surgery.
