Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions are issued with a counterfoil on the right hand side. You just need to tick the items you need and drop it into the surgery. Alternatively you may post, fax, email or submit online (available soon) to woodlawn.gppractice@nhs.net.(Clinical queries should not be sent via this email as it is a no reply service and is not viewed by clinical staff). We require at least 48 hours (spanning working days) notice in order to process your request.

ALL PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS MUST BE MADE IN WRITING

WE DO NOT ACCEPT TELEPHONE REQUESTS FOR PRESCRIPTIONS.

If you want us to post the prescription back to you, please supply a stamped addressed envelope. Some local pharmacies collect from us so your prescription can be sent to them direct. If you lose the counterfoil, request forms are available in reception. You will be asked to come in for a check-up at sensible intervals in line with policy. A more detailed leaflet on repeat prescriptions is available at reception.

Batch Prescribing

Batch prescribing enables patients to collect regular prescriptions from a pharmacy of their choice without coming into the surgery. Only patients who are stable on their medication are suitable and your doctor will inform you if this is an option for you.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.00
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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
