There are 3 methods of ordering repeat prescriptions:
Please give a minimum of 2 working days notice prior to collection - see timetable.
Prescriptions are normally prescribed for duration of 28 days. The CCG does not enforce a primary care policy for repeat medication supply lengths, although 28 day prescription lengths are seen as being a best practice option for many patients balancing convenience for patients with minimising waste. The practice has therefore decided to continue issuing repeat prescriptions at 28 intervals.
Pre-payment certificates may help some patients financially and repeat dispensing may offer convenience for patients on regular, stable medication.
New patients on a number of medicines can be seen by the practice Pharmacist to ensure we maintain their current medication and that appropriate ongoing appointments are scheduled.
You may also book an appointment to see the practice Pharmacist if you would like further information regarding any of your current medications.
These changes will allow the doctors to make their appointments available for more complex problems which the nurses and pharmacist cannot deal with.
Appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance by telephoning reception.
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.
