Once registered you will be able to view the repeat medications which are on the surgery's clinical system and which can be requested. Medications which need re-authorization from the doctor (where it says: Please see GP to order more) are not going to be on this list and can't be requested through the online system.
You will also be able to see the routine appointment slots available for different doctors and will be able to book or cancel your appointment online. This service is not for emergency appointments which should be booked by calling the triage nurse. The online appointment system has inbuilt restrictions to prevent multiple bookings.
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.
