Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow three full working days between requesting and collecting your medication from Reception. Remember to allow more time if you are collecting from a Pharmacy or for the weekends and bank holidays.
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

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