If your long-term medication has been approved on a repeat prescription basis you can place orders in the following ways:
Howdale Surgery patients can leave their repeat list at the pharmacy at Boots who will deliver it to the surgery on their behalf.
Dispensed prescriptions can be collected from the surgery during opening hours. Please note that currently the Howdale dispensary does not open until 10:00 am each weekday morning.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow three full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 15 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 3 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
