We are a dispensing practice and your medication can usually be supplied at the surgery after an appointment. We have an additional collection point at Staxton (see the dispenser for details). If you run out of medication over the weekend or Bank Holiday then you can contact the out-of-hours team using the surgery switchboard number to arrange a prescription.
If you normally have your medication dispensed by the surgery, we can deliver it for you free of charge. Medication will need to be ordered at least 48 hours in advance, and colostomy products and dressings will need to be ordered 3 days in advance in order to take advantage of this service. The delivery days are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Please ask at the dispensary for more details.
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.
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.
