If you require a prescription for long term or established treatment, the request can be made in a number of ways.
We do not accept telephone requests (to avoid any possible prescribing errors).
We require a minimum of 72 working hours to process a prescription request and ask that you plan ahead at busy times of year such as Bank Holidays.
Although we are not permitted to recommend a pharmacy, some local pharmacists operate a scheme whereby they will collect your prescription from us. They will then dispense to you from their pharmacy. If you are housebound they may even deliver to your home. You will need to discuss with your chosen pharmacy, whether they offer these services.
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.
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.
