You can order items which your doctor has authorized for repeat prescribing (for all others please talk to your GP) in the following ways:1. You can now order your repeat prescriptions on-line, register with receptionist. You can only do this for regular prescriptions that your GP has authorized.2. Request by hand: Tick the necessary item on your repeat prescription slip (= the right hand detachable part of your prescription) and drop it in the basket in reception.3. Send the repeat prescription slip in by post enclosing a stamped return address envelope4. You can sign up to the repeat dispensing scheme: Your GP will pass on generally half a years worth of your regular repeat prescriptions to your chosen pharmacist who then will have your medication ready for you at the right time each month. This again then can be collected or delivered. It also can be combined with the dosset box scheme, where your medications are put into a tray ready to take each morning, lunch or evening as prescribed. This is a very useful method if you tend to be a bit forgetful. If you want to sign up to either of these you need to talk to reception.
For you convenience we work closely with the local pharmacies and arrangements can be made to forward your prescriptions directly to them. Please speak to the receptionist about this facility.
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.
