Patients on long-term medication and approved by their doctor for repeat prescriptions can order in the following ways:
Please remember, if you are going away on holiday make sure you have an adequate supply of any regular medication in their original labelled containers.
The surgery offers a dispensing service for those patients living more than one mile, as the crow flies, from the chemist nearest to you, not necessarily one you may use. These boundaries are set by the government and are out of our control.
It’s EASY, SAFE, CONFIDENTIAL and FREE
Sign up at your local pharmacy and all your prescriptions will go directly to them electronically* straight from our system, so you can go straight to the pharmacy to collect. We can send them electronically to any pharmacy who is participating, they will have a sign in their window or ask them, so if you work in Hull, Bridlington or York etc and would like to collect your prescription from a pharmacy there, just pop in and sign up with them.
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.
