The practice runs a computerised repeat prescribing service. If you are on regular medication you will be given a computer slip with the drugs you take printed on it. When you need more medication, tick against the items you require and either post the slip to us or place it in the box outside the dispensary. You can also email: IESCCG.Bildestonhealthcentrefirstname.lastname@example.org or fax: 01449 740903.
Alternatively you can order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple registration.
We do not take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone as mistakes can all too easily happen. Of course if you do have problems we are always happy to help if we can.
It takes two working days (48 hours) to process repeat prescriptions so do take care not to run out of medication. For those who have difficulty getting to the surgery we have various ways to get your medication to a collection point near to you. Please ask the dispenser who will advise you.
We now offer a FREE prescription delivery service for our elderly and housebound patients. For more information please contact a member of our dispensary team.
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
Private prescriptions are medication which your PRIVATE Doctor has recommended for you on a private prescription. A private prescription is not written on an official NHS prescription and so is not paid for by the NHS. The cost of a private prescription is met wholly by the patient and is dictated by the cost of the medicine plus the pharmacists charge for supplying it. A prescription is a legal document for which the doctor, who has issued and signed it, is responsible for. Therefore, a NHS doctor cannot convert a private prescription to an NHS prescription except in exceptional circumstances. A doctor you see privately can’t issue an NHS prescription.
If you wish to discuss this with your doctor please make an appointment to do so.
There are a number of ways that you can help to reduce the issue of wasted medicines and save money for your local NHS.
