From Monday 3rd July 2017, repeat prescription requests will be processed by the NHS Prescription Ordering Direct Service and the practice will no longer take requests for repeat prescriptions from your pharmacy. You will need to phone the POD service on 0300 131 1100 to order your medicines instead of phoning or visiting your pharmacy to make an order. The POD will arrange for your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice and dispensed as normal. This is a pilot service being run by DGS & Swale CCG’s for 12 months, alongside other GP Practices. This will help to deliver improved care to patients and reduce medicines waste. The CCG, on behalf of the practice, will process your personal data (with your consent) in order to review and manage your repeat prescription.”
We are now offering telephone consultations only from 8am-12am daily to speak to a GP/Nurse/Paramedic Practitioner

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.
From 1 April 2013 the charges are:
If you will 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. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.85, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
