Please allow up to 48 hours for us to process your request.
URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS
Due to the number of emergency prescriptions the surgery are being asked to process the GPs have had to change the rules regarding what can be requested as an urgent prescription. Please note:
It is a patient’s responsibility to order medication before running out.
From 2nd October, Elgar House GP’s will only issue urgent prescriptions for certain medications eg inhalers, epilepsy medication etc.
All other medication requests will be dealt with within 48 hours.
A request received before 11.30am will be dealt with by 4.30pm the following working day.
Medications can be requested up to 2 weeks ahead in most cases.
Please make sure you or your pharmacy order in plenty of time.

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
