collect after 4pm:
Please request repeat prescriptions well in advance of public holidays, etc.
For those that request their prescription be sent to a local pharmacy then the time will be dependant on that pharmacy. Please contact the relevant pharmacy for an indication of the timescale.
If you are going on holiday or there is a Bank holiday coming up, please order your repeat prescriptions earlier, still giving us the normal two working days to generate and get it checked and signed by the Doctors.
Patients can either collect their prescription from the surgery or a chemist of their choice.
In order for prescriptions to be collected from a chemist, patients need to register at their chemist of choice for the 'Prescription Collection Service'. Once the Chemist has agreed to collection on your behalf, Patients then need to instruct the Practice which must be in writing. Forms are available from most chemists.
The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the place you choose to get your medicines or appliances from.
Find out how this could save please read the Electronic Prescription Service leaflet.
The NHS prescription charge is a flat rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can't afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need a lot of medication.
