If you are housebound or have difficulty getting to the surgery please ask the dispensary about repeat medication deliveries to your home.

Those patients for whom we are unable to dispense (those living less than one mile from a chemist) repeat prescriptions requests can be collected at a local chemist of your choise or the signed prescription can be collected from the dispensary and taken to any chemist.  Ideally hospital prescriptions should be prescribed by the hospital’s outpatient pharmacy.  However in exceptional circumstances hospital prescriptions can be processed as soon as is practical by the medical practice.  If we dispense to you please be aware that some medications may have to be ordered in specially.  Please speak with one of our dispensers who will be able to advise you.

Prescription Charges

The current NHS prescription charge is £8.60 per item (April 2017).  Should you need four or more items in a three month period you could save money by buying a Prescription Pre-payment Certificate (PPC). Ask for form FP95 from the dispensary or visit www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/pcc or telephone the order line on 0300 330 1341.

A pre-payment certificate is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. Please be aware that renewal of a certificate is your responsibility and a valid certificate should be shown each time you collect your medication.

Medical Exemption Certificate

People with certain medical conditions can get free NHS prescriptions if:

  • they have one of the conditions listed below; and
  • they hold a valid Medical Exemption Certificate.

Medical Exemption Certificates are issued on application to people who have:

  • A permanent fistula (for example caecostomy, colostomy, laryngostomy or ileostomy) requiring continuous surgical dressing or requiring an appliance
  • Epilepsy requiring continuous anticonvulsive therapy
  • Diabetes mellitus, except where treatment is by diet alone
  • Myxoedema (that is, hypothyroidism requiring thyroid hormone replacement)
  • Hypoparathyroidism
  • Diabetes insipidus or other forms of hypopituitarism
  • A form of hypoadrenalism (for example Addison’s disease) for which specific substitution therapy is essential
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • A continuing physical disability which means the person cannot go out without the help of another person. Temporary disabilities do not count even if they last for several months

Or are undergoing treatment for cancer:

  • including the effects of cancer; or
  • the effects of current or previous cancer treatment

Please ask for form FP92A, available from the dispensary.  A Medical Exemption Certificate is valid for five years.

Please note: A Medical Exemption form is different to a pre-paid Medical Certificate, which lasts for one year.  It is the patient's responsibilty to ensure you have the correct valid certificate when signing for prescriptions.
