Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will usually be asked to see a doctor, pharmacist or practice nurse at least once a year. This is to review your regular medications. Notification should appear on your repeat slip or online request, or you may be contacted directly.

Please make sure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid delays to further prescriptions.

Non-urgent advice:

We need two full working days to process prescriptions, and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Prescriptions are ready to collect after 16:00.

Medication Queries

If you have questions about your medication, you can ask your community pharmacist. If they can’t help or you need to discuss your medication with a member of the practice team, we have a practice pharmacist who you can speak with. You can make an appointment with our in practice pharmacist by calling reception.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

The NHS prescription charge is an amount of money that you have to pay to get an NHS prescription. This is how much 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 many medicines.

NHS charges

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.
