Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and you will be contacted by post when you need to be seen. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR PRESCRIPTION SHOULD BE READY TO COLLECT 2 WORKING DAYS AFTER ORDERING, UNLESS THERE IS A PROBLEM, IN WHICH CASE WE WILL CONTACT YOU TO CLARIFY YOUR REQUIREMENTS. IF YOU ORDER YOUR PRESCRIPTION ON A THURSDAY IT WILL NOT BE READY TO COLLECT UNTIL MONDAY AND IF YOU ORDER ON A FRIDAY IT WILL BE READY TO COLLECT ON TUESDAY.IF YOU ORDER YOUR PRESCRIPTION IN THE AFTERNOON IT WILL BE READY TO COLLECT IN THE AFTERNOON, 2 WORKING DAYS AFTER ORDERING.
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
