EPS – a new way to order your medicines and appliances
Those patients with longstanding health problems may have repeat prescriptions after discussion with their doctor. These are computerised, the practice having a list of all regular medication that patients are using.
Patients are issued with a printed prescription, which is signed by the doctor and a printed copy, which should be retained to be used to re-order their medicines, please tick the items you require. If a medicine you normally take is not on your prescription copy please print the name and dose in black letters.
Repeat prescription requests may be:
We are unable to take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone. If you provide a self- addressed stamped envelope we will post a repeat prescription back to you as soon as it is ready.
A patient may also opt to have their prescriptions collected from the surgery by one of the local chemists. This will require a patient to fill in an authorisation form, which may be obtained from the chemist.
Please allow 48 hours (Monday to Friday) for the prescription to be processed. If you are using one of the services offered by local chemists for collection, you should add a day to the turnaround time.
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.
