You may be allowed some treatment on prescription without seeing the Doctor although you will need to be seen every six months.
Please give 48 hours notice for repeat prescriptions and 48 hours for on line prescription requests excluding weekends and bank holidays for your request to be processed.
Repeat prescription requests over the telephone are restricted to patients that are housebound or over 65 years old. Please call after 2.00pm for this service in order to prevent blocking the telephone lines.
For safety reasons from the 31st Dec 2018 we will no longer be taking requests for repeat medication over the telephone
From this date requests for repeat medications can be made:
On-line - Ask a receptionist to register you for on-line services
In person - requests can be posted into the prescription box in the surgery reception area. Please use the computerised repeat script form where possible to avoid the risk of errors and remember to tick all items required. If you require your prescription to be posted to you please provide a stamped addressed envelope
By Fax - Please fax your request to 01268 690498
Through your Local Pharmacy - Ask your local pharmacy about their Repeat Prescription ordering and collection service.
Whichever way you choose please allow us at least 2 working days to prepare your prescription and for it to be checked and signed by the doctor
Antibiotics will not be given over the phone without having seen or spoken to the Doctor.
The prescribing of antibiotics for dental abscesses is not encouraged. GP's are not trained in dental problems and patients will always be advised that it would be in their best interests to seek a dental opinion. Only in exceptional circumstances will we issue a prescription
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 15 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.
