IF ORDERING YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS ONLINE -PLEASE TELL US WHICH SITE YOU WISH TO COLLECT IT FROM- THE KING STREET SURGERY OR THE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL PRACTICE
If you are running out of your usual medicines you can order another prescription from the surgery in various ways:
We shall be offering patients the facility to order their repeat prescriptions by email, and introducing a new system which allows some patients, on medication which does not alter, to order repeat prescriptions via your usual pharmacist and to collect them from there instead of the surgery. This would mean you don’t have to order them on a monthly basis. Please ask your pharmacist if he provides this “repeat dispensing” service.
For these systems to run smoothly we request at least 48 hours notice before collection.
To maintain a high quality of service, the doctors would like all patients on regular medication to be reviewed from time to time. You may be asked to attend the surgery periodically to see a doctor/nurse/practice pharmacist for review.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
