If you have signed up for Appointments Online & text reminders you can now order your repeat prescriptions via Patient Access (through the link above) . If you have not registered and wish to order your Prescription online please ask for your registration details next time you are in the surgery. (please bring ID)
Patient Access tends to make the prescription process quicker as comes in direct to our computer system, please get signed up asap!
If you have signed up to online prescriptions and appointments you will automatically be able to view a Summary Record online - giving you details of your medications, allergies and immunisations to help you keep on top of your health!
Requests for repeat prescriptions should be made by completing the tear-off slip on your prescription (the white half) and ticking the item(s) you require, you can then either:
“We aim to provide repeat prescriptions within 3 working days of the initial request. If you are ordering your prescriptions very early due to holidays etc, please let us know on the request"
Please also be aware if you are requesting an item that you have not had for more than a year, you may need to be seen by a clinician to get it re-started.
DUE TO THE LARGE AMOUNT OF PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS WE HAVE ON A DAILY BASIS PLEASE COLLECT AFTER 3PM TO ENSURE WE HAVE RECEIVED THEM BACK FROM THE DOCTORS.
We will only contact you if we come across a problem with your request. Please leave an up to date phone number.
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.
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 at least 3 working days, (this is excluding weekends and Bank Holidays) for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery on 01905 22888.
