If your long-term medication has been approved on a repeat prescription basis you can place orders in the following ways:
It is possible to organise REPEAT DISPENSING for many medications. This means that if you have regular medication which is unlikely to change, we will be able to organise a number of prescriptions to be sent to a pharmacy of your choice. You will need to make only one visit to the surgery in order for the reception team to be able to organise this for you. You will then be able to attend the pharmacy monthly to pick up your medication. We are able in certain circumstances to give up to one year's worth of prescriptions to the pharmacy. Your medication review must be up to date and your medicines on repeat prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed.
