INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING
WUHAN NOVEL CORONAVIRUS INFECTION
All travellers who develop relevant symptoms ( for example respiratory symptoms, shortness of breath, cough, fever) however mild, within 14 days of returning or transitioning from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau should not attend the practice, but should remain at home and immediately call NHS 111 for advice.
Please return the tear off slip from your previous prescription to the surgery, clearly indicating the items that are required and where you wish to collect the prescription.
Telephoned or faxed requests are not acceptable as errors may occur.
Repeat prescriptions will normally be processed and ready for collection within TWO working days from the surgery.
Prescriptions can also be posted direct to you when accompanied by a stamped - addressed envelope.
Please remember to order your repeat prescription before your current prescription expires, allowing extra time to cover for the surgery being closed at weekends or bank holidays.
You can also use the on line service to order repeat prescriptions if you are registered
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 PPC.
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. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
