NURSE AWAY- 22nd Feb 2019 Due to unforeseen circumstances Yvonne will be away from the surgery for a couple of weeks. We would like to apologize for any inconvenience caused.
Hampton Medical Centre offers patients the convenience of having their repeat medication issued without being seen by a doctor, and ready to pick up, usually within two working days.
Please note, that in order to keep things simple, and avoid misplaced re-order forms or prescriptions, patients need to be aware of the following:
Patients can also now order repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page. First time users are required to complete a simple registration. To avoid errors prescription requests will not be taken over the phone.
Prescriptions must be collected during the week – Monday to Friday only! If you are ringing for a prescription query please ring after 10.0 am. If you have requested a new item or changed dosage, please ring the next day to check if your new item is accepted by the doctor.
However you can sign up for Electronic Prescription Service [ EPS ] where you nominate a pharmacy of your choice [ this is done by your chosen pharmacy ] there by the prescriptions go straight to the pharmacy electronically.
Your must see a doctor if you need to have your repeat prescription renewed.
With all medications and items needed for optimal everyday health, please ensure that you plan ahead, so that if your medication is due to run out soon, you must send in a re-order form, or book an appointment to see a GP to have your prescription updated. Please allow plenty of time before you run-out of your medication!
You may be able to collect your medicine straight from the pharmacy every month if your condition is stable and your medicines stay the same.
You may be able to save time when ordering your prescription, by ordering between 3-12 months supplies from your GP and picking up monthly supplies from your regular pharmacy. You will still be able to see your doctor or nurse when you need to.
In time your GP or pharmacist will be able to ensure that you have an equal supply of all your medicines, meaning that you finish them all at the same time. Your GP or pharmacist will be able to review the medicines that you take on a more regular basis. This will mean that you do not take medicines that you no longer need and wastage will be reduced considerably. If your medication is changed, less medicine will need to be thrown away.
If you have any questions or concerns, discuss them with your pharmacist or GP.
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 15 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.
Antibiotics are medications used to treat – and, in some cases, prevent – bacterial infections.
They can be used to treat relatively mild conditions such as acne, as well as potentially life-threatening conditions such as pneumonia.
However, antibiotics often have no benefit for many other types of infection. Using them unnecessarily would only increase the risk of antibiotic resistance, so they are not routinely used.
Read more about when antibiotics are used on the NHS Choices website.
For more general information about antibiotics, see NHS Choices website.
