Welcome to our new Practice Newsletter. We would welcome any ideas or contributions for future editions. Copies are available to download via the link below (copies are also available from reception).
If your doctor has put your medication on a repeat prescription you will be issued with a computerised slip which you will need to hand in or post to the surgery allowing 48 hours for processing each time you require medication.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form.
If you wish us to post your prescription to you please enclose a stamped, addressed envelope. If you would like to collect your prescription directly from Lloyds pharmacy in Emmer Green or Boots the Chemist in Caversham please ask at reception for details.
Please note: we require 48 hours' notice for repeat prescriptions during office hours.
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
