TIMESCALE FOR PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION
Ready for collection on the afternoon of
Saturday or Sunday
*Except for Bank Holiday Mondays when the prescription would be ready on Thursday that week.
(These timescales may also apply to the Co-op Pharmacy in Metheringham.)
Open Monday – Friday
We offer a complete dispensary service for your medicines, the service being available to patients who live more than 1.6km from a pharmacy. However if you have recently moved from a non dispensing surgery and have not moved house, the Pharmaceutical Society has a regulation preventing us from dispensing to you.
Please allow 48 hours for us to obtain the medicines for you once we have received the prescription.
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 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
Benefits of an NHS Prepayment Card
The prepayment card currently costs £104.00 a year, payable in one lump sum or by direct debit of £10.40 for ten months (two months of no payment).
The individual cost of a prescription has now increased to £8.60 per item.
There are thirteen “28 day periods” in a calendar year.
13 x £8.60 = £111.80
(a prepayment card is already going to save you £7.80)
If you have any further unexpected prescriptions
e.g. Antibiotics, these are also covered by your prepayment card.
If you currently pay for more than one item a month, the following may apply to you;
2 items per month would be a saving to you of £119.60 a year.
3 items per month would be a saving to you of £231.40 a year.
4 items per month would be a saving to you of £343.20 a year.
Please ask a member of staff for more details.
If you have been prescribed medication which is not on your list of repeat medications please print the following form and return to the surgery for approval.
Medication Request Form
As of Monday 10th August 2015,
we will no longer take requests for medications by phone or verbally at the reception desk.
All requests for medication will have to be in writing or requested on-line.
This decision has been made for the safety of our Patients and has not been taken lightly.
A repeat slip can be printed for you at the reception desk or dispensary desk allowing you to tick the medications you require.
If you would like to be set up to request your medications
on-line, please take some photographic ID to the receptionist or dispenser and they will print off the details for you.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but this is in the interests of Patient Safety which is very important to us.
