This can be done by contacting the repeat prescription clerk by:-
Please make your requests as clear and concise as possible, giving the name of the medication you are taking, the dose, the amount you take a day and the total amount you have normally per prescription.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. We will do urgent prescriptions if you run out of your medication by accident.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
The practice now has a practice pharmacist called Fiona Tang, Fiona is available to advise patients on their medication, do medication reviews and ensure patients fully understand their medications and how to take them.
If you wish to make an appointment with Fiona, please call the receptionists on 0161 212 6565 to arrange this.
Would you like to order your prescription in the usual way but not have to come to the surgery to pick up the paper prescription?
With EPS - Electronic Prescription Service you are able to pick your prescription up from the pharmacy without having to come to the reception to pick it up.
You can organise this with a pharmacy of your choice and pick your medication up straight from the pharmacy.
