If your doctor agrees, repeat prescribing may be obtained in one of two ways:
- By posting a repeats slip from your previous prescription into the post box on our reception desk or;
- By requesting the medications you require online
Please note in all instances, we require 48 hours notice for repeat requests.
Repeat prescriptions will be ready for collection 2 working days after ordering – 4pm onwards.
If you have requested to collect your prescription from the chemist (excluding Curries and Felkis in Wyke) please contact them directly so arrangements can be made to collect this for you.
Periodically the GP/ Practice Nurse will request that you have a medication review this can be done by attending surgery or arranging a telephone consultation with one of our practice Pharmacists.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- If you are prescribed medication on a regular basis, you may save money by purchasing a Prescription prepayment certificates (PPC). These can be purchased as either a three monthly or twelve monthly certificate.
- A three monthly PPC saves you money if you need four or more items in three months.
- A 12 month certificate saves you money if 14 or more items are needed in 12 months.
