You may obtain repeat prescriptions by placing your written request in the red post box in the corridor across from Dr Shobha’s room. You can also order your repeat prescritpion on-line via the online services link.Alternatively you may post your request with a self-addressed envelope or via the fax number. Upon receipt of your request we aim to have the prescription ready 48 hours later. This gives the Doctor time to carry out essential regular checks on your repeat medication to eliminate any related problems. The local Pharmacies offer a collection and delivery service. Please enquire with your chosen chemist for details.
Repeat prescriptions are not taken over the telephone as this may lead to errors and also it blocks the telephone line for people ringing surgery for appointments and emergencies etc.
Many remedies for minor ailments are available over the counter and the local chemist would be able to advise you on these.
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.
From 1 April 2016, the charges are:
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £8.40, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
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.
