For Information only -
We as a practice are required by the Government and under the terms of our latest GP contract to allocate all patients a Named Accountable GP. The practice has a record of this and if you wish to know the name of your Accountable GP, please ask at reception. This does not affect you in any way and you can still see any member of the practice team.
If you are on regular medication the doctor may agree to you obtaining repeat prescriptions. Our repeat prescriptions are printed by computer and you will find a tear off copy of your medication record attached to the prescription. You can order a prescription in any of the following ways:
Please allow 24 hours for your prescription to be completed whenever possible. For disabled and elderly patients home delivery by the Chemist is possible (please ask for details)
If you have a repeat prescription the doctor will need to see you from time to time for a review. This allows the doctor to check that your medication is still suitable. You will be reminded about your next review by the receptionist or the pharmacist.
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.
