Please Note that our Practice will be going live on Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) from May 2016.
EPS enables GPs to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy of the patient's choice. This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient. It gives you the choice of choosing a place for your prescription to be sent electronically to get your medicines or appliances from.
For More information visit www.hscic.gov.uk/epspatients, your pharmacy or at the GP Practice.
If you are on long-term medication and have been approved for repeat prescriptions you can order in a number of ways:
Some chemists have a delivery service available for the elderly and housebound. Please contact your local chemist for details.
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 and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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
Please allow 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
