Changes to medication
We are constantly reviewing and updating our prescribing in line with local and national guidelines, as a result you may notice that when you collect your repeat prescription your medication has been altered. Please be assured that the alternative will have evidence based efficacy and safety whilst being more cost effective to the NHS.
These switches are being made by all local practices and is a joint approach to maximise the NHS budget within which we have to operate.
If you have any queries regarding your medication, please discuss this with your local pharmacist, or please contact the practice so that one of our pharmacists can make themselves available to speak to you.
* Please be aware that if you are registered for Patient Access you now now order repeat precriptions through there. You can only request medication you have on repeats. If you require any additional medication please order as usual at the surgery or via the website prescription ordering form.
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 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
Prices correct as of April 2017
