Prior arrangements can be made with many chemists to collect your prescription for you so that you can then collect from the chemist when it is dispensed. In certain circumstances they may deliver them to you at home.
Ordering your prescription online
You can now order your repeat prescription online. Please see the button on the front screen.
From 25th September 2014 we are using Electronic Prescriptions. You will need to nominate a pharmacy. To do this you should speak with the pharmacy that you normally use for your prescriptions. Once you have a nominated pharmacy you will no longer need to collect your prescripion from us. Instead the prescription is sent electronically to the pharmacy and they will dispense it for you.
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 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
