From the 1st October 2016 our prescription line will cease to exist.
If you are wishing to order a prescription you will need to order the prescriptions online.
Online accounts are accessible by all patients and all you need is your log-in information.
This is available over the front desk.
You can collect your login details when collecting your prescription.
Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made in the following ways:
A black letter box has been placed to the right of the reception desk for you to post your prescription requests. Prescription request sheets have also been placed on the reception desk for your convenience.
To assist the receptionist in processing your prescription you will need to give the following details. Your full name and address and names and strengths of all medication you require. Any medication you have requested that is not on your list of repeat medication will be referred to the doctor and issued at their discretion.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery. If the chemist is collecting your prescription from the surgery it is your responsibility to order the prescription and then notify the chemist. The practice will not accept requests for prescriptions from chemists.
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.
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 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
You can collect a passbook from the chemist which allows you 6 visits to your pharmacist if you are suffering from any of the minor ailments in the scheme. All pharmacies in Heywood and Middleton and most Rochdale pharmacies can provide this service.
If you do not pay for your prescriptions this treatment is free. If you do pay for prescriptions this treatment will be same as a prescription charge or the price of the medication (Whichever is cheaper).
You don’t need to wait to see your doctor as you can get advice and treatment from your community pharmacy.
If you are pregnant or breast feeding, and babies under 3 months old are not eligible for the scheme.
