Do not be surprised if your doctor does not give you a prescription. Most common, simple illnesses get better without any treatment at all. In particular, antibiotics will not cure viral infections. Indeed, they may make you feel worse. The symptoms of common illnesses may be helped by simple remedies such as aspirin (not for children under 16, please) or paracetamol, which all households should stock. Your local pharmacist will always be happy to advise. Hay fever treatment for all over the age of six can be obtained from the pharmacist. The 'morning after' pill is effective taken up to 72 hours later.
48 hours' notice is required for repeat prescriptions.
Some local pharmacies provide a delivery service if you are unable to collect your medication. Please arrange this directly with the chemist. If you are on regular medication your doctor may agree to you having repeat medication for a limited time without an appointment.
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.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
