As of 1st October 2019 we will no longer be accepting prescription requests on the patient's behalf by their nominated pharmacy. Stopping community pharmacy requests aims to address safety and medication waste. We understand that this change may cause inconvenience to some of our patients and their carers. In exceptional circumstances we will be happy to consider requests from patients for their nominated pharmacy to continue ordering on their behalf.
This means that from 1st October 2019 you will need to order repeat medications from the practice directly or online rather than from your pharmacy. Please note this affects the prescription request part of the process only.
Our preferred method for requesting prescriptions is via the SystmOnline link above (This links directly to our practice system and is automated, therefore there is less risk of error)
To use the system you will need to obtain login details from reception (please ensure you have photo ID with you).
We operate a computerised service for repeat prescriptions.
We do not accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions.
You can also request further supplies of your medication either
All requests will be available for collection within 48 hours after receiving (excluding bank holidays and weekends).
Please inform the surgery if the hospital makes any changes to your regular medication.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further 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.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed.
From Thursday 12th March 2020 there will be a change in how prescriptions are issued.
Patients who collect prescriptions from the surgery will no longer be issued a G.P. signed prescription but a paper copy (also known as a token).
This paper copy can be taken to any pharmacy for dispensing
Patients who have a nominated pharmacy will not be affected by this change.
Patients who do not have a nominated pharmacy please consider doing so as the majority of prescriptions will now be sent electronically. To nominate a pharmacy of your choice, please speak to your pharmacy.
For more information please visit www.nhs.uk/EPS or ask a member staff.
The NHS has issued guidance that recommends GPs do not routinely prescribe medication for certain self-limiting conditions or those that lend themselves to self-care where medications can be purchased easily at low cost. Over the coming months the practice will be reviewing it’s prescribing in these areas. A self-care guide for minor illness can be found here. We would appreciate your support in this.
