If you are on repeat medications, or wish to request medication that you have previously been prescribed by one of our doctors, you can request your medication in the following ways:
We cannot accept any medication request over the telephone. All requests for medication MUST be in written form and can only be requested 7 days early.
Prescriptions will be available after 72 hours excluding weekends and bank holidays, but may take longer during busy periods.
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 14 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
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see our pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications. This review will normally take place during the patients month of birth. A notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Once you have completed this form for the first time, with your medication required, the next time you request medication the form should remember your previous entries.
