If your doctor has approved you for repeat prescriptions you can order them in a number of ways:
ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTIONS - from September 2014
EPS.pdf Please click on this link to see information about how electronic prescriptions will work for you.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your prescription from the surgery. For deliveries and collection from a pharmacy please allow three working days.
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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
Worcestershire CCG no longer support the prescribing of certain items.
The CCG have set up a website to provide patients with more information
