For all routine requests your prescription will be available for you to pick up after 2-4 working days.
Please indicate your preferred pharmacy for collection when making the request. Prescriptions can be collected from the reception desk if preferred.
ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE
We have now started an electronic prescription service in conjunction with Boots and Lloyds chemists. If you wish to know more or sign up for this then please contact your local chemist. This will not affect the way you request your medications. Please remember that the practice is not able to take prescription requests over the phone.
Remember to order your repeat prescriptions early when the medical centre is closed for Bank Holidays, Christmas or Easter.
If using on-line ordering early you will have to send a message listing your medications as the system does not allow you to order more than one week in advance.
It takes at least 48 hours to process a prescription once it has arrived at reception. If you leave your prescription with Lloyds or Boots then please add an extra 24 hours to be sure that your prescription will be ready.
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.
Prescription costs as of April 1 2017
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS England Health Costs
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
Some patients who use certain medications may be able to benefit from the Electronic Repeat Dispensing (eRD) service. This means that patients do not have to re-order prescriptions for regular medicines every time they are needed (usually monthly), and your GP can re-authorise 6 months of medication at a time.
