This practice currently offers the facility for all patients to order online, view and print a list of their repeat prescriptions for drugs, medicines or appliances.
Practice Mission Statement
Our commitment is to our whole community, to strive to provide quality healthcare in a safe, trustworthy, accessible way, while working ethically and with compassion.
When you require more medicine please give at least 2 working days notice. Post, fax or bring in your repeat prescription slip to the Ditton Priors or Stotteson Surgery.
Patients can request medicine to be delivered to the Stottesdon Surgery.
If you are not exempt please have your prescription charge ready. If your doctor thinks your case suitable, he will arrange for a computerised repeat prescription. The receptionist will explain how this works.
If you wish to speak to a member of the Dispensary Team regarding your medication. Please call after 2pm.
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 two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication.
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 13 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
Please allow 2 working days, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
