Repeat Dispensing (batch prescriptions)
If you have prescriptions issued for 6 or 12 months you will not be able to use this service. If you need a further issue of batch prescriptions you will need to make an appointment with a Doctor.
If you are on regular medication you will need to retain the right hand side of your prescription to submit when you next request your medication.Repeat prescriptions will only be issued on receipt of this or by providing ALL of these details in writing. You can order your repeat prescription via the following methods:-
If your prescription request is received by 2pm, your prescription will be ready for collection 48 working hours later, after 4pm.
Request before 2pm Collect after 4pm
Monday ................... Wednesday
Tuesday ................... Thursday
Thursday ................... Monday
Friday ................... Tuesday
You will not be able to collect your repeat prescription/s on a Saturday .
To avoid mistakes being made we will not issue prescriptions by telephone request. If you are on stable, regular medication, ask your doctor about repeat dispensing. This enables you to leave your prescriptions at the chemist to collect without having to request them from the surgery. Please note this service is not suitable for all medications.
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 4 or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 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.
