For repeat prescriptions, we require 48 hrs notice (excluding weekends). The easiest way to do this, is to sign up to (nominate) a chemist to have your prescription sent to them electronically (EPS Service),
You may order repeat prescriptions by bringing your request in to reception, by posting it through the letter box when we are closed or by using the postal service with a stamp addressed envelope (please allow one week’s notice if using the postal service).
You may also order/collect your prescription with the help of either Ling’s Chemist, Asda Pharmacy or Tesco Pharmacy all on The Old Kent Road. Please ask at reception for details.

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.
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 pre payment certificate.
