If you think you may need a prescription medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor. If you have previously been given a prescription for a straightforward condition, such as hay fever, we may be able to issue a prescription after a telephone consultation. Please ask the receptionist. Your local pharmacist should be able to give you advice for non-prescription medication. We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription. From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor to review your medication. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.
You can ask for a repeat prescription: by coming into the surgery when the reception is open; by post; or via FAX on 01908 319493 or by ordering via System Online, you will need a special login for this, please contact the surgery to arrange for this to be set up. Wherever possible please give the exact drug names when ordering.
We cannot take telephone requests for repeat prescriptions because of the possibility of error.
Please give 48 hours notice when requesting a repeat prescription that is listed on your repeat prescription list. For Prescription requests for additional acute items please allow 72 hours. It may be necessary for you to speak to a doctor for additional acute medication requests. Please always use the computer repeat request form.
Pharmacies at New Bradwell, Lloyds Stantonbury Boots (CMK and Bradwell Common), Rowlands and Heelands also offer a repeat prescription service.
URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS

If you normally get your prescription from a dedicated pharmacy they may be able to give you a small emergency supply whilst awaiting the prescription to be processed.
If you run out of your medication over the weekend or when we are closed and not taking your medication would have a severe effect on your health please in the first instance talk to a pharmacy to see if they are able to give you an emergency supply. If they are unable to assist please attend the walk in centre for assistance.
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.
From 1 April 2009, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £28.25 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
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.
