If you are on regular medication your doctor will usually allow you to have a number of repeat prescriptions without having to be seen each time. You will be given a computer printout with the details of your medication on it. Please use this to order a repeat prescription by ticking the items you require. You can then either:
Please note we do NOT accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Please allow us at least 48 working hours to have your prescription ready.
You will only have a certain number of repeat prescriptions before seeing your doctor for a check-up. This will usually be once or twice a year. This is done to ensure your health is continuously monitored. Your printout will inform you of how many repeats you have left.
Some patients prefer to have their repeat prescriptions managed by a pharmacy. Lloyds Pharmacy, Bowland Road, Co-Op, Bowland Road and Thacker’s, Altrincham Road www.myrepeats.com
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.
