If you are taking regular medication you will be issued with a computerised repeat prescription form: when you need more regular medication please tick the box next to each item required and deliver or fax/post to the surgery (if we are closed please put it through the letter box by the back door). Alternatively you may order your repeat medication online by following the link at the top of this page and carrying out a simple registration.
2 full working days later your medication will then be available to collect as follows:
Non-dispensing patients - collect from Lloyds Chemist, North Street, Ashburton.
Dispensing patients* - collect from the Surgery during opening hours.
Alternatively you can opt to collect your prescription from Reception and take to a different chemist, or we can post your prescription to you (please include a stamped, self-addressed envelope if you wish us to do this).
You can also leave your repeat prescription with Lloyds Chemist, however please allow an extra day for it to be turned around.
We regret that we cannot take telephone requests. This rule minimises errors and is for your safety. If you require medication urgently, ask to speak to your doctor.
[*we may dispense medication to you only if you live more than a mile, as the crow flies, from your nearest Chemist]
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor or member of the nursing team at least once a year to review these regular medications. The date by which the next review should be performed is printed on the medication repeat slip.
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.
