Electronic Prescribing Is available for REPEAT medications ONLY.
This service is only available to patients 16 years and over.
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 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
It is extremely important that all Patients on repeat medication must have a medication review once a year. Our staff are able to identify all patients who are due a review and will issue you with a form to complete around the anniversary date of your medication review.
Once you have completed your medication review form and handed it back in to the surgery, it will be passed to your usual GP who will then check and review all of your current medications. If everything is ok, the GP will re authorise your repeat medication for a further 12 months.
Patients on certain medications may be required to have regular blood tests or blood pressure checks, the GP will inform you of this at the time of your medication review and you will be asked to make an appointment with our Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant.
If you order your medication via the Electronic Prescription Service and you are due a medication review, please print off a medication review form and return it to the Practice by hand or post.
Please ensure that your form is completed and returned to the surgery as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
