Prescriptions are now ordered through the West Lancashire Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) Service. You can order your prescription by ticking the right hand side of your prescription and dropping into surgery, by phoning the POD on 01772 214852 or by visiting patient access. Your prescription will then be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy. Once your prescription has been processed it will be authorised by your GP and sent to the pharmacy within 2 working days. The POD is open Monday - Friday 8.30am - 5.30pm.
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. During bank holiday periods the turn around for repeat prescriptions will increase.
