Medication Reviews

All patients receiving repeat prescriptions are requested to be reviewed six-monthly to ensure the medicines remain appropriate.

The next review date is printed on the right hand side of your ordering slip and this should be checked periodically to ensure you make an appointment before the review is due.


Prescription 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.
