NHS England has released a small amount of money to support the winter pressures in general practice locally. This will provide on, on average, about 24 extra appointments on Mondays until the end of February (About a 3% increase during this period). These have to be book on the day appointments and will be released by reception in line with the other book on the day appointments.
If you have a condition that needs continued medication, your printed prescription will normally show a medication list on the white (tear-off) side and the pharmacy will give this list to you. This may then be used as a record and to order a further supply.
To order your repeat prescription either:
order online here, (prior registration required)
e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
or tick the items you require on your printed list and drop it into the surgery or post it to us.
Telephone orders are the least accurate and hardest to process and so are only accepted for housebound patients.
Your prescription will normally then be ready for you, or your designated pharmacy, to pick up two working days later. Repeat prescriptions will occasionally be declined and you will be requested to see the doctor for re-assessment.
All pharmacies in Bromsgrove will pick up prescriptions from the surgery so that you may then collect the medication directly from the pharmacy. Housebound patients may have their medication delivered. Please contact your pharmacy for details.
The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate, per item 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 savings for those people who are not exempt and need extensive medication.
Extensive exemption arrangements protect those with certain conditions (cancer, thyroid problems, diabetes needing medication etc) and those likely to have difficulty in paying charges.
On the rare occasion that a private prescription is required please be aware that both doctor and pharmacist may charge a fee for processing. This would be discussed with you at the time of issue.
From 1 April 2011, 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. Telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030

Patients being seen on the NHS by a nurse or doctor must be issued with NHS prescriptions. Conversely patients being seen by a doctor under private arrangements must be issued with a private prescription. This may commonly occur when a patient chooses to see a specialist privately and it is Worcestershire policy that this initial prescription for medication must be paid for privately even if the repeat medication may be available from the GP on the NHS.
There is a small list of drugs (directed by government) which must be prescribed privately even within an NHS consultation. The commonest of these are medicines for erection problems, travel medicines and some older sedative medications. When these prescriptions are handled by the pharmacy they will make a handling charge to the patient in addition to the costs of the medication itself which will need to be paid.
Patients from outside the European Union will normally not be seen under the NHS and consequently consultations and prescriptions will be privately charged. These fees can often be claimed back on travel insurance policies on returning home so be sure to keep receipts.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
