When you need to take medicines regularly the doctor or nurse may put them on repeat prescription. If so you will then have a tear off slip listing these medicines. You can request further supplies by ticking the items you require and either:
If you require further advice please ask at reception. Please note that prescriptions cannot be ordered by telephone.
Please do not order repeat perscriptions unless you actually need them. Only tick the items on your repeat slip which you actually require.
Remember, the pharmacists can give you lots of advice about your medicines.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor or practice nurse at 6-12 month intervals, (dependant on medication and how the problem is controlled), to review these regular medications.
Please allow a full 48 hours (excluding weekends and bank holidays) between requesting and collecting your prescription.
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 on 01773 713201.Thank youKelvingrove Medical Centre
