PLEASE NOTE; We require 48 hours notice for all repeat prescriptions. Chemists are now charging a fee for emergency supplies of medications.
Emergencies Emergencies during surgery hours telephone 8772 2621. Between 8.30 and 6.00 pm, urgent requests will be given prompt attention by the receptionist and the doctor will be informed.
Urgent AppointmentsIf you have an urgent problem, although you will be able to see a doctor the same day, it will be the first doctor available and may not be your usual doctor.
Cancelling your Appointment If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone the surgery.
Prescriptions may be issued for regular medication, which your doctor has authorised as a repeat item. Requests can be made in person at the reception desk, in writing, by post enclosing a stamped addressed envelope, by telephone or fax or by leaving the computer generated list on the right hand side of the prescription.
Repeat prescriptions will be processed and ready for collection within 48 hours . Please ensure you order your repeat prescription in advance of running out of your medication to ensure treatment is continuous. PLEASE NOTE; Chemists are now charging a fee for emergency supplies of medications.
Requests for non-repeat prescriptions will be passed to the nurse/doctor for attention. All patients on repeat medication will have their need for the medication reviewed annually. Some patients will be required to attend the Nurse or doctor. Patients who do not attend for medication review will have to contact a doctor each time they require a repeat prescription.
Collection of PrescriptionsPrescriptions may be collected at surgery reception. The local pharmacies collect prescriptions directly from the surgery and patients will be asked at the time of ordering their prescriptions if they wish to use this service.
Prescriptions will be posted directly to patients on provision of a stamped addressed envelope. The practice will also post prescriptions to pharmacies in neighbouring towns but this will mean a delay in the prescription being available for collection ie 72 hours.
Prescriptions will not normally be handed out to children.
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.
From 1 April 2009, the 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 £7.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £28.25 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
