We are now in the delayed phase of our response to COVID-19. This entails significant changes to how we identify and manage potential cases of COVID-19. Advice for NHS organisations is now as follows:1. The public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate for 7 days if develop symptoms) and 14 days if any household develops symptoms without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:a. A new continuous coughORb. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCE. STAY AT HOME AND SAVE LIVES
You will find a repeat prescription request on the right hand side of your prescription.
Please post your request for repeat prescriptions in the box inside the main entrance, or if the surgery is closed use the letter box in the bottom door. We are normally able to provide a repeat prescription within 48 hours but if possible please allow longer.
We also have the facility for you to request prescriptions via the internet or the Apple APP. Please ask at reception for details and a password.
If you are taking any regular medication we offer a yearly medical review to ensure you have the best treatment. If you have any chronic medical conditions we may need to review you more frequently.
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 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
If you have a regular repeat prescription we can now forward up to twelve months prescriptions in a batch to a pharmacy of your choice. This means that every month you can collect your prescriptions direct from the chemist without having to request a prescription from the surgery.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
