which means your medication can be ordered through a simple phone call.
Why? The POD is staffed by dedicated and fully trained prescription clerks who have access to all your repeat prescription records. We feel this will satisfy many patients who want to phone for their repeat medication, as well as being safer as properly trained call handlers are used. The aim is not only convenience but to ensure patients are receiving the correct quantity of medication. It reduces unnecessary medication being dispensed and has saved a huge amount of NHS money so far.
For more details see our website- we will be adding the POD leaflet shortly.
For those who want the freedom to order any time of day- this can still be done through the online EMIS access – ask for a leaflet or see our website, but we will no longer be accepting e-mails for repeat medications.
On line access can also allow you to look at results, and documents on your records!
Patients can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
Telephone requests will not be accepted.
If you are requesting an item that you have had previously but it is no longer on your repeat slip; please handwrite this at the bottom of your prescription request and the GP can decide if you are able to have this without being seen.
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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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.
