If you are on regular treatment your doctor may arrange for you to be able to collect your prescription without an appointment using a computerised system.
Please make your request in person, in writing (with a stamped, addressed envelope) or by fax to: Rothwell (01536) 714189 or Desborough (01536) 763281 and allow at least two working days, excluding weekends and bank holidays before collection. We recommend submitting your request well before you run out of medication to allow for unforeseen delays. We do not accept requests for prescriptions by telephone as this can lead to errors. Your medication will be reviewed regularly and you may be asked to see your doctor before further prescriptions are issued.
Rothwell Medical Centre and Desborough Surgery are pleased to be able to offer an online service to their patients with internet access for requesting their repeat medication.
This is in the format of a computerised system called SystmOnline and is available to use via home computers. To access this system patients are required to sign up via the practice reception to obtain their password and access authority. Please bring some identification when registering for this service.
You may occasionally wish to request a further supply of prescription-only medication, which has not been authorised for repeat prescription. You need to provide this request in writing. Please complete the following Non-Repeat Medication Request and either hand into reception or send using the details above. We will normally refuse to issue prescriptions for items you have not been issued before, or for items available from pharmacies or shops without prescription.
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.
