Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
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.
From 1st November 2018, due to workload pressures, please allow 72 hours (3 full working days) for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. It may take longer if there is a query on your prescription.
Please check with your local pharmacy how long it takes them to process your prescription.
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 15 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
If you have tablets or medicines that you no longer require or which have reached their expiry date, please return them to a pharmacy, not the surgery.
