If you wish the pharmacy to deliver your medication, please indicate this clearly on your request.
Collection: Please allow 3 working days for your prescription to be prepared. If you order by post, please also allow extra time for posting.
Delivery: Please allow 3 working days from receipt by the practice and then time for the chemist to arrange delivery for you. You will need to check with the chemist on when they will deliver.
A message will be printed at the bottom of the right hand side of the prescription, when you are due to see the doctor for a check up or medication review. You must then make an appointment before any more prescriptions are issued.
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.
