Prescriptions will be printed and authorised by GP’s or nurse practitioners at the practice where medication needs to be recommended to treat your condition.
You may receive a repeat prescription from your GP where the medication to treat your condition is on-going.
You can order your prescription by the following methods:
Please note: we do not take prescription requests over the telephone as it can lead to errors.
We aim to have your prescription ready within 48 hours of you placing the order. This allows us time to sort out any queries there might be with your prescription e.g. when the doctor has to re-approve your medication and it also gives us time to get your prescription signed by a doctor.
We do recognise that problems can happen and you may need your medication urgently. In this case please explain to our receptionists and we will deal with your request as soon as possible.
You can arrange to have your prescription collected by your chemist. If you wish to do this, please state on your prescription which chemist and which branch will collect your prescription.
Periodically the doctor will need to review your medication to ensure that it still meets your needs.
The review date is printed on the bottom of your prescription. Please ensure that you arrange a review around the date of your review.
Where your review date has passed, it is likely that you will need to see the GP to review your medication prior to your medication being authorised again.
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
