This is the easiest way to order your medication as you will be presented with a list of your available items and will not need to type them in again. You will need to register for online services before you can use the service.
Please note that only items which are authorised for repeat issue will be shown. If some of your items appear to be missing from the list, this may be because we need to review you before re-authorising the medication. Whilst you may type a request for other items in the box at the bottom of the request page, you should also check with the practice whether we need to discuss these items with you.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed (excluding weekends and bank holidays).
This practice offers an Electronic Prescription Service, so if you nominate a pharmacy your GP will send all future prescriptions electronically to your preferred pharmacy.
If you would like to take advantage of this service and haven’t yet completed a nomination form, you should either ask your preferred pharmacy to set your nomination or if you speak to the receptionist they will be able to do it for you from the practice computers.
You don’t need a computer of your own to sign up for this service.
You will need to continue to order your prescriptions in the usual way, remembering that the practice needs 2 working days to process them.
If you get a repeat prescription, you will not have to spend your time going to your GP practice each time to pick up your paper prescription. Instead your GP will send it automatically to the place you choose, with less chance of it getting lost.
Nearly all pharmacies will be connected to the service, so you will be able to get your medicines from any pharmacy you choose – whether it’s near home, work or the shops.
You may not have to wait as long for your prescription items, as often there will be time to get your repeat prescription items ready before you arrive. If any of the medicines on your prescription are out of stock when the pharmacist receives your prescription, they can be ordered in ready for you.
Nothing - you will continue to get paper prescriptions as you do now.
A full list of pharmacies who are offering electronic prescriptions is listed on NHS Choices Website You will see ‘Electronic Prescription Service Available here’ next to the name of the pharmacy listed.
More information about the Electronic Prescription Service is available from your local pharmacy, at the GP surgery or on-line at www.connectingforhealth.nhs.uk/eps.
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 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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
When a patient is seen privately by a specialist or GP for a single episode of care, any short term medication required should be paid for by the patient as part of that package of care. Prescriptions for acute items as a result of a private consultation should be obtained from the pharmacy, not given to your GP.
If a private consultation identifies a long term condition or a need for medication which is available as routine NHS treatment this should be provided as such by the patient's usual GP. This applies whether the referral was by an NHS doctor or the patient self-referred. However the NHS doctor would only be obliged to prescribe in line with NHS or local policy/formulary.
There is no obligation on behalf of the GP to prescribe the recommended treatment if it is contrary to his/her normal clinical practice. The consultant’s advice on choice of treatment is advisory and the GP may choose to prescribe an alternative product bearing in mind national and local guidance/formulary.
If the GP deems the ongoing supply of medication to be clinically appropriate/necessary it should be prescribed in accordance with local policy/formulary as appropriate. If the recommendation does not follow local guidance/formulary, the GP can substitute the drug with a clinically appropriate alternative.
The patient should be advised to contact their CCG for further details.
Please allow 2 full working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed.
