ALL patients require a medication review at least once every year. We are unable to issue your repeat medication if you haven't had this. Please ensure you book your review at least one month prior to your due date. Your doctor will wish to review your treatment periodically and ask you to attend the surgery when this is necessary. A message: 'Review is due on...................', together with the date, is shown on the right hand side of your prescription, underneath your list of medications to remind you to make this appointment with your doctor or practice nurse.
Please provide a letter of authority if you are unable to collect your own prescription and wish it to be collected by a third party.
The Mid-Essex Clinical Commissioning Group have asked GPs to reduce their prescribing of the common medications in the following list. These are available over the counter from your pharmacy. To see list please click here
We are currently experiencing a very high volume of prescription requests. Prescriptions may take up to 4 working days to process.
We require a minimum of two full working days to process repeat prescriptions. Please remember to make allowances for weekends and public holidays. Repeat prescriptions for regular medication must be requested in writing, preferably by using the tear-off slip attached to the computer-prepared prescription. Please mark clearly with a tick against each item required.
You can post in your repeat prescription request to us, and if you enclose an SAE we will return it to you once prepared. You can also order directly by completing the form below, but you must register for this. Our receptionists can advise.
If you want to drop off a prescription after the surgery has closed - please post the presciption request in an envelope under either the front or back door of the surgery. It will be collected and processsed by the prescription team.
Online booking, repeat medication requests and other associated services are now available through our new clinical system.
To request access to our online services please contact reception with the following documents ;
Photo ID and proof of address - for example a passport or driving licence together with a bank statement or council tax statement
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.
