It is important for you as a patient to be able to order any repeat medication you require in a convenient and safe manner. It is also important that any medication prescribed for you is checked to ensure that it is appropriate and that we invite you for regular medication reviews.
Please call into the Surgery so that we can provide you with further information about the online system and register you as a new user. You can read about the online service here.
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 July 2015, 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 £8.20, 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.
