Request for authorised repeat prescriptions should be made in person, by post and be accompanied by your computerised re-order slip. Prescriptions are usually available for collection 72 working hours after we have received your request. If you let us have a stamped addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you.
Telephoned requests are accepted between the hours of 2.00pm and 5.00pm by choosing option 3 when asked to do so.
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
Please allow 72 working hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
