Patient EPS Information.doc
To make sure patients receive the right prescription and ensure patient safety, we do not accept telephone request for repeat prescription
Complete the back of your prescription and post it to the surgery prescription box which is located near the reception window.
Your prescription will normally be available after 48 hours (normally after 2pm on the second working day following your request).
Prescription posted in on a Friday will be ready to collect on Monday afternoon.
Please do not wait until you have finished your medication before re-ordering.
If you need to make an appointment, please try to book it before your prescription runs out.
Alternatively, you may post your request to the surgery along with a stamped self-addressed envelope.
Any patient who has seen a Clinician privately, or at a private hospital must get their prescription from that hospital. IT CANNOT BE TRANSFERRED TO AN NHS SCRIPT.
If you have any queries, please ask the Practice manager or Receptionist.
Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
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.
