PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION SERVICE
If you take medication on repeat prescription, you may wish to take advantage of a free service offered by your local pharmacies. They will offer to collect prescriptions from the surgery and have the medication ready for collection at an agreed time at their premises.
If you wish to take advantage of this service you can find out which pharmacies participate by phoning your usual pharmacist or asking at the surgery reception.
Some local Pharmacies do offfer a delivery service - please contact your preferred Pharmacy to make these arrangements.
Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
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 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre payment certificate.
