Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in a number of ways:
With effect from 1st January 2020 we will be phasing out our fax machine – please use one of the methods listed above to request your prescriptions.
Wherever possible we now provide electronic prescriptions. For this to work you will be asked to nominate a pharmacy. We will then issue your prescription electronically via a secure spine server so that the pharmacist at your chosen pharmacy can see what the GP has prescribed for you. It means you no longer need to collect a paper prescription from the surgery, instead you simply order your prescription as normal and allow 48 hours (2 working days) before going to your nominated pharmacy to collect your medication.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.
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.
