In the interests of patient safety, we DO NOT take requests by telephone as mistakes can easily be made and such calls block the lines to emergency calls.
Prescription requests are processed each day, all of which have to be checked and signed by the doctors. It is necessary therefore to allow 2 working days before collecting prescriptions.
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.
The current prescription charges are:
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £9.00, 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 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
