Repeat prescriptions will be issued at the doctor’s discretion and are normally for patients on long-term treatment. When you need a repeat prescription there are a number of ways to place an order:
There is also a delivery service for our housebound patients, speak to your local pharmacy.
Patients on repeat medication will have their medications reviewed at least once a year. Please contact reception and they will let you know if you need to have any tests or if the GP needs to see you.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 15 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
