Ordering repeat prescriptions must be done in writing. Once processed the prescription can either be:
Please allow 2 working days for prescriptions to be processed if collecting from the surgery. If collecting from the pharmacy please allow 3 days before collection. Be sure to indicate where you wish to collect the prescription.
PLEASE ALSO REMEMBER...
We will normally issue 1 months' supply of repeat prescriptions (excluding contraception and hormone replacement therapies). In certain cases a maximum of 2 months may be issued. This stems from Surrey Downs CCG guidance to reduce the cost implication for the NHS as a whole. Please try to order all your repeat prescriptions at the same time. This significantly reduces the processing workload for our reception staff.
At the bottom of your repeat prescription slip there is a review date. This date ensures your doctor reviews the medications you are on. As a result of this you may be asked to come in for blood tests, a blood pressure reading or an appointment with the doctor or nurse. Review dates are important and if you have any questions about your medication then do not hesitate to ask
You can now order your repeat prescriptions online. If you have already registered for online appointments this facility is now available to you. If not then please complete a form available from our reception desk. To order your repeat prescription once registered please click on the link at the top of this page.
PLEASE NOTE: Any non-repeat items required should be made in writing to the surgery in the usual way. Additionally, for safety reasons; we do not take medicine requests over the telephone.
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.
The NHS introduced 'Electronic Prescription Service' - which our practice subscribes to. This service gives you the option to ‘nominate’ the pharmacy you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. If you would like further information regarding this service please either talk to a member of the reception team or pick up a leaflet and a request form in order to apply.
