You may have some medication on your repeat prescription that you can request without seeing your Doctor for a set amount of issues.
You will need to come for medication reviews with GP or Practice Nurse before your repeat medication issues run out.
Following any changes in your condition, or changes of medication made by a hospital, please book an appointment to see a doctor.
A computer-generated slip is produced with each prescription issued. This is used to request your next prescription. Items you require should be ticked and handed in allowing 48hours or if posting send one week before your medication runs out. We request that you do not telephone for your repeat prescription as this blocks the telephone line preventing urgent calls getting through.
Your local Chemist may provide a collection service please ask them for details.
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.
Gluten Free Policy
If you have been diagnosed with coeliac disease then it’s important to talk to your doctor about what this means. Ask him or her to refer you to a Registered Dietitian for advice on what you can and can’t eat. Information to help you learn more about how best to manage your diet and health is also available on NHS Choices website and the Coeliac UK website
www.nhs.uk/conditions/coeliac-disease and https://www.coeliac.org.uk/home/
This policy applies to all patients. However, special cases will be considered on an individual patient basis. Where a patient’s GP considers that a patient would receive additional benefit from NHS treatment when compared to other patients with the same clinical condition, they will be able to refer into a central CCG panel for the case to be considered.
Any queries about this policy should be directed to the CCGs Patient Engagement Team on 0800 028 3693; email NSHCCG.Pet-North@nhs.net or in writing to Patient Experience Team, NHS Newark and Sherwood Clinical Commissioning Group, Balderton Primary Care Centre, Lowfield Lane, Balderton, Nottinghamshire NG24 3HJ.
