Please give two full working days’ notice when requesting a repeat prescription.
Indicate your requirements on your repeat slip and post it into the slot of the locked metal box provided in reception. Alternatively write to us enclosing an SAE and we will post it back to you by return.
Telephone requests will not be accepted as this can lead to errors and block the telephone lines. However, you can fax your request to us on Fax No; 228 1653 (as from Friday 28th February this number will be decommissioned and switched off, our new fax number after this date will be 0151 247 6220) or order this online if you are registered to use the online service.
We are not a dispensing Practice but there are at least two local chemists within a very short walk from the Practice.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see our clinical pharmacist, doctor 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.
SPEAK TO US ABOUT SIGNING UP FOR PATIENT ACCESS IN ORDER TO BE ABLE TO ORDER YOUR REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS ONLINE.
SPEAK TO YOUR PHARMACY OF CHOICE ABOUT SIGNING UP FOR ELECTRONIC PRESCRIBING WHICH WILL ENABLE YOU TO ORDER YOUR PRESCRIPTIONS FROM US AND COLLECT THEM DIRECTLY FROM THE PHARMACY WITHOUT HAVING TO RETURN TO THE SURGERY. THERE MAY BE TIMES WHEN WE ARE UNABLE TO ISSUE AN ELECTRONIC PRESCRIPTION, ON THESE OCCASIONS A PRINTED PRESCRIPTION WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR YOU INSTEAD.
Important Patient Notice - Changes to Repeat Prescription Ordering
The NHS in Liverpool is making a change to how repeat prescriptions can be ordered.
From 29.08.18 patients in Liverpool will no longer be able to use a third party, such as a high street or internet pharmacy to order repeat prescriptions on their behalf.
Instead patients will need to order repeat prescriptions direct from their GP themselves – either in person at their practice, via GP online services, or by post.
A letter and information leaflet explaining this change in more detail is being sent to all patients who may be affected by this change.
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please speak to a member of our practice staff for further help and advice.
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.
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.
