Thanks for your co-operation not calling into surgery before prescriptions are due to be ready as this causes extra work.
It is important that you clearly tick the items you require. You may prefer to post your repeat prescription request enclosing a stamped, self addressed envelope and then staff can post the prescription back to you.
To save time waiting at reception there is a mail box in the foyer marked prescriptions which is opened regularly. There are arrangements with some local chemists that will deliver prescriptions to the elderly or housebound – please ask at reception.
If you have to pay for more than three prescription items in three months, or 14 items in 12 months, you could save money by buying a Pre Payment Certificate (PPC). From 1 April 2017, the charge for a single prescription item is £8.60. The most convenient way to pay for your 12 month PPC is by direct debit, spreading the cost over 10 monthly instalments.
To apply for a PPC, visit www.ppa.org.uk/ppc or telephone 0845 850 0030.
Some patients in receipt of certain benefits are entitled to free prescription charges.
