There are two types of prescription, acute and repeat:
Acute Prescriptions- are issued by the doctor in the short term only. A re-issue of an Acute will require a TCB with your doctor and may well take up to 5 working days to issue. They do NOT appear on your Counterfoil.
To order Acute Prescriptions please see the instructions below
Repeat Prescriptions – are issued when the doctor is happy that the medication is working and can now become a Repeat. These WILL appear on your counterfoil. They can be issued without a TCB with a doctor and within 3 working days.
To order Repeat Prescriptions please see the instructions below
To order your Repeat Prescriptions you can:
To order your Acute Prescription you must book a Telephone Call Back (TCB) with your doctor.
Order in time – Allow 3 working days to process your order
Only call for non-urgent prescriptions or queries in the mornings
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.
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.
