Medication Reviews

We will ask you periodically to book a medication review to review your treatment. We might not be able to prescribe more medication if you do not have this review. We will invite you to book by telephone, by the NHS App, or by a booking link sent in a text message to your mobile phone. If you take only one or two medicines we may ask you to complete this form instead.

Over-the-counter Medicines

  • You can buy over-the-counter medicines in pharmacies, supermarkets and some high street shops.
  • GPs, nurses and pharmacists will not generally give you a prescription for over-the-counter medicines.
  • Your local pharmacy offers help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns. If your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they will help you get the care you need.

Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.

This advice is in line with national guidance from NHS England.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

You can have your prescriptions sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice through the EPS v2.

This means that there are no paper prescriptions that can get lost, and there is no delay waiting for the pharmacy to collect the paper prescription from the surgery. As soon as the doctor has authorised your repeat prescriptions they are sent electronically to the pharmacy you have chosen and are ready for you to collect from them.

You need to nominate one pharmacy and your prescriptions will always go to that pharmacy. It can be used just for your repeat medication or for all medication the doctor issues you. If you are interested in doing this then please ask at your pharmacy, or at the practice reception, or the clinician when you see them, and it can be sent up for you.

Prescription Charges and Exemptions

The NHS prescription charge is a flat rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who cannot afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need a lot of medication.

Prescription Fees
