WE ARE WORKING CLOSELY WITH NOTTINGHAM UNIVERSITY SUPPORTING 4TH YEAR MEDICAL STUDENTS. WE WILL HAVE STUDENTS WITH US FOR 4 WEEK PLACEMENTS. THEY WILL BE SUPERVISED BY A GP AND YOU CAN DECIDE IF YOU WANT A STUDENT PRESENT OR NOT AT YOUR CONSULTATION.
You may be allowed to have repeat prescriptions without having to see your doctor every time.
Attached to your prescription is an order form for the drugs available to you on repeat prescription. All you need to do is tick the items you require and return or fax the form to the medical centre.
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration.
If you are housebound and unable to get the form to the surgery, you may telephone after 14:00.
Adhering to local guidelines we are reviewing our repeat prescribing policy for patients aged 75 and over, who will now receive 28 day prescriptions. We are also looking to ensure that all your medication renews on the same date
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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
You can now use the Electronic Prescribing Service to nominate a pharmacy of your choice to collect your prescriptions from. Please se the link below to find out more:
