To request a repeat prescription you can tick the items required on the computerised prescription form and do one of the following:
All requests for repeat prescriptions are subject to 48 hours notice. Please ensure you either contact your local pharmacy or the practice preferably 1 week before your medication is due to run out.
We only take prescription requests over the telephone for patients that are HOUSEBOUND or elderly.
Alternatively you can send us an email of your request to the following: CAHCCG.firstname.lastname@example.org
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see or speak, either to a doctor, nurse practitioner, practice nurse or pharmacist at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.
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.
