CQC Inspection report Jan 2015
** Passport counter signatures **
Due to a change in the government guidelines our G.P's will no longer be able to sign patient passport applications as they need to have known you personally for two years. The passport office brought this change into effect 18 months ago but is now enforcing this change and is rejecting applications that have been signed by G.P's
We are very sorry that we can no longer provide this service for our patients. Please refer to the Direct Gov website for more information about who can sign your application.
Repeat prescription forms are issued for prescribed drugs, which you require on a regular basis.
Repeat prescriptions will be ready for collection after (2 working days) if you have requested it on time and have had your medication review.
Prescription requests must be in writing.
We can accept requests:
If you require the prescription to be posted back to you then please supply a stamped addressed envelope. Prescription requests will not be taken over the phone.
We are a electronic prescription practice. Patients can request their medication through the methods above. Rather than collecting the prescription from the practice, it will be transferred electronically to your preferred pharmacy. You just go along to collect it from your pharmacy.
For safety you are advised to have regular reviews, if you are taking long-term medication. A message will appear on your prescription when a medication review is due and you should then book an appointment with the doctor who is prescribing your medication. The doctor will then discuss the medication with you and agree a monitoring plan. This may require you to have blood and urine tests. For some medication the doctor will only need to talk to you or check blood pressure or breathing.
Batch prescribing, this is a new method of prescribing which allows us to give you prescriptions for 6 months, please ask your doctor about this.
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.
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.
