Our prescription policy has not changed and we will reject requests that are too early.
We will not inform you if your request has been rejected.
Please allow 5 working days for you prescription to be sent to your chosen pharmacy.
If you have not downloaded the NHS APP already, please do this as you can order and track your medication on it.
Medications that a prescriber has agreed are suitable for repeat can be found on the repeat slip attached to your prescription. We receive about 700 prescriptions requests a week!
PLEASE BE AWARE WE ARE NOW PROCESSING PRESCRIPTIONS VIA THE ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION SERVICE.
We are asking patients NOT to attend the surgery to collect their prescriptions. We are sending all prescriptions via EPS to your nominated pharmacy. Please indicate which pharmacy you wish to collect your prescription from on your request.
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 30th April.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
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.
