We endeavour to have your prescriptions ready for you within 48 hours.
To order a repeat prescription, please bring the tear off slip that is attached to your prescription to the reception, or you may post it to the surgery (including a stamped addressed envelope) and we will post your prescription to you.
You can also request your repeat prescription online. Please speak to reception about registering for this service.
Please ensure that you order all the items you need for the next 28 days.
We do not accept repeat prescriptions over the telephone
The Doctor will wish to check your condition and medication on a regular basis before issuing further prescriptions. Please let the Doctor know immediately if the hospital changes your medication.
Please remember – do not wait until you have run out of your medication before you re-order a prescription and ensure you have enough medication to cover weekend and Bank Holiday closures
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 2019 prescription 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 £9.15, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.65 and a 12 month PPC £105.90.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
January 2017 will see the practice move to electronic prescribing. This means that your prescription will go electronically to a Pharmacy of your choice without having to have a paper copy to physically hand over to the Pharmacist. Can patients please ensure that they let us know their nominated Pharmacy as soon as possible so that we can enter this onto the electronic system. Your local choices are: Selston Pharmacy Brinsley Pharmacy Acorn Pharmacy in Jacksdale. Patients going on holiday in the UK can nominate a Pharmacy at their holiday location whilst away from home if you need your medications whilst away. Please let the practice know if you wish to do this prior to your holiday.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
