Patients on regular or long term medication may be given a repeat prescription facility. This means that repeat prescriptions may be obtained without the need for an appointment on each occasion.
Prescriptions can be ordered in any of the following ways:
Prescriptions ordered before 4pm will be ready for collection after 2pm, two working days later.
Prescriptions ordered after 4pm will be ready for collection after 2pm, three working days later.
Please note we do not work Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays.
If you struggle to collect your prescriptions some local pharmacists do provide a collection service and some will also deliver your medicines to your home. Please contact them directly to arrange this service.
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.
From 1 April 2015, the charges are:
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £8.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Please collect after 2pm, if you prefer to collect in a morning please allow us 3 working days notice. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
