If you are receiving repeat medication you should have a green counterfoil to your prescription that lists all the items. If you do not have a list, our receptionists will be happy to print one off for you.
You can order repeats in a number of ways:
Please note telephone calls may be recorded
A GP will review your records every 6 months, when your medication review date has past. You may be asked to come in and have a medication review at this time, but this is often not required if you maintain your appointments for your health reviews in the practice.
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
