Please allow 3 full working days for the practice to process your repeat prescriptions; this is for all patients including those that are dispensing.
Prescription Charges for Dressings
Under the NHS, dressings supplied at the surgery that are used to treat wounds, do incur a prescription charge unless you have any exemption as displayed on the back of a regular prescription Part 1.
Depending on how many visits you need to attend and the variety of dressings used, there may be more than one prescription charge. You will be informed of an estimated cost during the consultations. If not exempt, you will be asked to pay for the prescription for the dressings.
In some circumstances we may suggest a pre-payment card, which is a one off payment to cover all prescription charges over a 3 month period.
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.
