The practice operates a system that allows you to obtain a prescription for regular medication without seeing a Doctor or a Nurse. NB. Prescriptions will not be issued if a medication review is due.
A Repeat Prescription will normally be available for collection after 4.30pm two working days later. You may contact the North Hyde chemists to collect the prescription on your behalf. The following options are available for patients to order a Repeat Prescription:
You may also ask your Chemist to order the same medication again on a monthly basis when you pick up your prescription.
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 14 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
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.
