Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions at Glebe Road Surgery

You can request repeat prescriptions in three ways:

1. By post
2. Online: Please click on the link above to order
3. In person at reception

Nice_blue_pillsIf you are on long term medication you will be given a repeat medication slip with each prescription. To obtain a repeat simply tick the items you require, and return the slip to the reception desk. Alternatively reception have order forms you can complete at the desk.

For legal reasons our receptionists are unable to accept telephone requests for medication. If you enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope we will post it back to you when it is ready.

Requesting medication early: if you need to request your repeat prescription more than a week before it is due (e.g. because you are going on holiday) please specify why this is. We are not able to process early requests without an explanation.

If you are on regular repeat medication you may send or leave a request for your prescription using the green counterfoil. A stamped addressed envelope should be enclosed with postal requests.

To avoid errors requests for prescriptions cannot be taken over the phone or by email.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Hospital Prescriptions

NHS Prescriptions issued by hospitals are only valid in the hospital pharmacy. Requests for private prescriptions or NHS hospital prescriptions to be issued from the practice need to be individually assessed by the responsible partner. This can result in delay and the issuing of an alternative medication. Some such requests may need to be declined.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Unused Medications

Unused medicines kept at home can be a health risk and should be returned to a pharmacist. Please tell your local pharmacist or GP if you have stopped taking your medication. When ordering a repeat prescription please ensure that you only tick the medications on the form that you currently need, and ensure your pharmacist does not give you medication unless you have asked for them.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £8.80
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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
