Please see our COVID19 page here for advice about any changes/advice during COVID19.
All prescriptions will be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice.
Please let us know which pharmacy you would like your prescriptions to be sent so we can make the necessary changes to your records.
If we do not receive a notification form you about which pharmacy you would like to nominate we will amend your records to send prescriptions to the Well Pharmacy in Claremont Terrace as this is the pharmacy closest to the surgery.
You can change your nominated pharmacy at any time and can also request a one-off amendment for specific prescriptions, e.g. if you are away from home temporarily. Please remember to ensure this is changed back.
A number of local pharmacies provide a repeat ordering and/or home delivery service for patients who are less mobile or housebound.
You can still request prescriptions in the same ways you have done previously; the only change is in the way we will issue the prescription.
If you receive regular medication you can request a repeat by the following methods:
To enable us to process your request promptly and efficiently please ensure the items requested are clear, including dosage and amount required and include your name, your address, your date of birth, and which pharmacy you would like your prescription sent to if it different to the one we have recorded for you on our system.
Prescriptions should be processed within two working days. Please check with your nominated pharmacy for the additional time they will require to prepare your medication.
Please help the receptionist and yourself by remembering the following key points when requesting a repeat prescription:
The following pharmacies collect prescriptions from us each weekday:
Well Pharmacy, Claremont Buildings
Hall & Whiston
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
