PRACTICED CLOSED FOR BANK HOLIDAY ON:
Monday 7th May 2018
Repeat prescriptions are available where appropriate for those on long-term treatment. They are processed on our computerised system when authorised by a doctor.
There are a number of ways to order a repeat prescription:
Repeat prescriptions may also be requested by phone, but this carries the risk of mishearing drug names or dosages so we do encourage you to use a written method when possible.
Your medication can be collected from Haverthwaite surgery during regular opening times. If you wish to nominate another person to collect your medication, please ask for the appropriate form at reception, and complete for our files.
It would be very helpful if patients could advise our staff when ordering the prescription where they wish to collect it from.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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. APRIL 2018
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.
