Order Prescriptions

Due to the current situation surrounding Coronavirus: COVID-19, we are requesting that patients do not come into the surgery.

To request a repeat prescription, please use the box located at the main doors of the surgery (for Keelby surgery, please post this through the letterbox). If you need to collect a prescription, please call 01469 572058 and we will arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy. If you have any questions, please get in touch.

Prescription telephone line no longer available. Please see alternative methods of ordering your prescription below.

 

How to order repeat prescriptions:

SURGERY

Fill in the repeat slip from your previous prescription or pick up a form at the practice. Once you have completed the form, you can post it into the box provided for requests at reception.

The box is emptied periodically throughout the day.

All repeat prescriptions will be made available 48 working hours after the order is placed. If you find you need your medication more urgently than this, please speak with a member of staff.

NHS Prescription Charges

From 1 April 2019, the charges are:

  •     Prescription (per item): £9.00
  •     12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  •     3-month PPC: £29.10

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.

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 £8.40, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
