Ordering Your Prescription
To order your Repeat Prescriptions you can:
If you are a Mylor patient and would like to collect your medication locally, please fill out the form located on the registration section. You can either post it to Trescobeas Surgery, or drop it in at the Mylor branch.
URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS
You should always allow 3 working days from the time of ordering your prescription to it being ready to collect.
Only a very small number of medicines are truly essential to have in urgent supply and the doctors have agreed to this important list. These include asthma medication, epipens, GTN sprays, insulin, warfarin, prednisolone, epilepsy medications and Parkinson's medications. Other medications are still important, but can safely be omitted for a few days if you have accidentally left it too late.
When you are requesting an urgent prescription you will be asked the name of the medication, what the medication is for and your reason for the emergency order.
Please understand that we must prioritise urgent processing for problems where somebody's health may suffer without their medication; so please order your regular medications in good time. You may be able to obtain some medications over the counter from a pharmacy until your prescription is ready.
Order in time – please allow 3 working days to process your order
There are certain criteria which need to be met:
Certain drug therapies require regular monitoring - blood tests etc. Most are initiated by the hospitals who will have explained the monitoring requirements to you. However, much of the actual monitoring will be carried out by your surgery. It is therefore absolutely necessary that you respond and come in for your tests when called. Failure to do so could compromise your health.
We are not permitted to continue to prescribe medication indefinitely without a review. Therefore when asked to attend a review please do so. Failure to do so may well lead to us having to cease prescribing the medication.
This is an issue of safety and is extremely important.
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.
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The certificate allows anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 a week. If you are prescribed four items each month for example, you can save more than £305 with a 12 month PPC.
You can apply for a PPC online, call the order line on 0300 330 1341 or apply by post - sending an application form and payment to NHS Help with Heath Costs, PPC Issue Office, PO Box 854, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE99 2DE.
Please find more information about a prescription prepayment certificate on the NHS website.
There is also further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
