Dr McDevitte has now left to work in Durham - we wish her well and are actively seeking a replacement.
All repeat prescriptions are computerised.
You can order prescriptions in a number of different ways.
1. Dropping your order into the box on the wall in Reception.
2. On the Phone Mon - Friday 8.30am - 3.00pm. Repeat Prescriptions are option 3 on the phone line.
3. On the Internet 24 hrs a day. To do this you must have registered for the service in person at reception.
Please nominate a chemist and your repeat prescription will be sent directly to the chemist.
Please give at least 2 days notice when reordering prescriptions.
It is most efficient if you order all your drugs at the same time. As from May 2015 we will only be giving one months supply of repeat prescriptions. This is to prevent wastage. The practice has to dispose of thousands of unused items every year. In addition to preventing wastage, the GPs and Nurse Practitioners and our Practice Pharmacist are able to monitor ongoing conditions more closely by conducting more frequent medication reviews and recalling patients who need to be seen.
Please allow 2 days before collecting your prescription from the chemist.
You now need to register for our on line services in order to order your repeat medication. If you have not registered for on line appointments previously then please ask for a form from one of the reception team.
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 2015, 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 £8.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 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.
