Weekend And Evening Appointments
If your doctor feels that it is appropriate for you to receive repeat prescriptions you will be given a repeat prescription card.
Requests for medication can then be made by either calling in at the surgery, by telephone, post or online.
Please remember to enclose a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post your prescription back to you.
Prescriptions can be sent directly to the pharmacy under special schemes. Please speak to the local pharmacy for details.
Please note that all prescription requests are subject to 48 hours notice.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
