To protect our other patients and staff please do not visit our surgery if you are suffering from flu like symptoms, diarrhoea or vomiting in the last four days. The doctors will be happy to do a telephone consultation. Ask reception for details.
Help the NHS reduce spending by only ordering what you need on your prescription. Please let the staff know if you no longer require a medication. This will enable the NHS to reallocate funding. Thank you for your help.
The Patient Group hold patient education evenings. Please contact them via e-mail or see the notice board for more information NMCPATIENT.GROUP@NHS.NET
48 working hours notice is required for repeat prescriptions.
You can send your request by post either in writing or by using the computerised slip, that is attached to your previous prescription, and by ticking the medication you require.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope, the prescription will be returned to you. If you have a mobility problem you may wish to use the 'chemist service'. This is when the prescription is passed to one of the named chemists who then delivers the medication directly to you .
Repeat prescriptions are reviewed regularly and if you have not seen your doctor within the previous six months you will be asked to do so.
If you would like to go on repeat dispensing please ask reception for details.
If you do not see the pharmacy you would like to collect from please inform us in the comments box and we can upload the pharmacy of your choice.
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.
