"If you have not registered for on-line prescription requests, please come in to the Practice for further information, along with forms of I.D (photographic ID and a utility bill for proof of address)".
Repeat prescribing guidelines require that the quantities of medication issued on repeat prescriptions will usually be for a single month's supply. A review of medication given on repeat prescriptions is undertaken at intervals of usually no more than six months (and may require blood tests or an appointment with the nurse rather than the doctor). This allows us to ensure that continuing treatment is appropriate and safe.
There are three ways to request a repeat prescription:
The regulations allow us to dispense to those of our patients who live more than a mile (as the crow flies) from the nearest community pharmacy. We cannot dispense to any other patients.
If you live more than one mile from a pharmacy you may collect your medicines from our dispensary.
If you have an exemption certificate please be prepared to show it to the dispenser before collecting your medicines.
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 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 3 working days (excluding weekends and Bank Holidays), for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
