When your doctor has organised a repeat prescription it can be obtained either by bringing the prescription slip to the surgery, or by posting it to us. We do accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone, and via this website-you need to be registered (see home page)to use this function.
Repeat prescriptions will be ready for collection after two clear working days. It is your responsibility to let us have your repeat slip in good time. Repeat prescriptions can be mailed back to you on provision of a stamped self addressed envelope, or they can be collected form the surgery or Alford Chemist.
We can dispense only to those living more than one mile from a chemist or pharmacy. Our Dispensary is open at the Surgery from Monday to Friday 9am to 7pm. If you require medicines urgently when the surgery is closed, please contact 111.
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.
Prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) are available in England and they can save you money.
Prescription costs as of April 1 2016
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £8.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
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.
