Reminder: Patients with Extended Hours appointments (before 8am) are reminded to use the rear door in the far corner of the car park - please ring the bell to be let in.
The practice has a computer information system through which all prescriptions are generated. If you are advised by your doctor to request a repeat prescription, please indicate the items you require on the counterfoil of your prescription and post, deliver, or fax the surgery on 01628 410051 .
You should allow 48 working hours from receipt of your request form for the prescription to be processed. It can then be collected from reception or can be posted back to you if you enclose a stamped addressed envelope (SAE) with your request.
You may alternatively arrange with your local pharmacy to manage your repeat prescriptions for you.
PLEASE ensure that you have adequate supplies of your regular prescriptions as it is important that some medicines are not stopped without your doctor knowing.
Under normal circumstances repeat prescriptions cannot be requested over the telephone.
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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
