SAMs now has the capability to accept card payments where payment is required for any additional services. Over the next 2 months we will be phasing out accepting cheques and cash.
The July DNA are disappointing! The number of patients who DNA has remained unchanged this month to GP 22 appointments (3.6 hours - down 3 hours), Nurse Practioner 12 appointments (2 hours - no change), Nurse 30 appointments (7.6 hours - up 1.2 hours) and HCA 51 appointments (8.5 hours - up 2 hours). This means wasted appointments equivalent to almost 3 full days of clinical time lost, less availability for other patients and poor use of clinical staff time.
You can request a repeat prescription on-line via the form on this website, by fax (01233 611664) or in person at reception. We are unable to accept requests by telephone.
Please allow 2 full working days for us to process the order.
We can accept repeat prescription requests for:
You will need to provide details of the items you are requesting and details to identify yourself, i.e. full name, date of birth etc.
If you leave a supply of Stamped Addressed Envelopes (SAEs) at reception we can post your prescription to you.
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.
