PHGH Repeat Prescription Request Form
Prescriptions are to be requested in writing via reception, by post, Online Services or using the Repeat Prescription Request Form above.
You can order your repeat prescription directly through Patient Access site. If you have not registered for this please click on the 'Appointments' tab above and select 'Online Patient Access' to download the consent form to register.
Please note that prescriptions are not dealt with over the telephone unless the patient is housebound.
If you are collecting your prescription from the surgery Please allow 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. If you are collecting your prescription from a named pharmacy please allow at least a week, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays before collection. This will also apply to prescriptions being sent in the post.
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 have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically very soon.
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
The Electronic Prescribing Service enables clinicians to prescribe and send prescriptions electronically to a nominated pharmacy of your choice. Let us know and we can set this up on your records.
This makes the prescribing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.
Once you have requested a repeat prescription, the GP will authorise and send the prescription through the EPS link to the pharmacy who can then dispense your medication.
EPS Patient Leaflet
If you have been given a private prescription by a consultant you have seen, the GP will decide if it is clinically appropriate to convert this into an NHS prescription. We will not issue medications without a clear written prescription and a letter from the consultant.
The doctor must agree with the treatment as they take clinical responsibility for signing it. With certain medications the consultant needs to be responsible initially, until the patient is stabilised on the medication. In some cases the GP may not feel happy to issue the prescription and the private or hospital prescription will be returned.
Please be aware we are an NHS practice and are governed by local prescribing policies which change from time to time.
Therefore private prescriptions will be dealt with within the same timescale as normal repeat prescriptions (72 Hours)
