Patients can request repeat prescriptions by completing the computer generated form which was attached to your previous prescription and handing this is at the surgery, ordering through Systmonline (please ask at reception for more details) or by phoning the surgery and selecting option 3.
Please allow two full working days before calling to collect your prescription or medication if you are a dispensing patient at Danes Dyke Surgery. Alternatively prescriptions can be sent directly to your local pharmacy, please ask your pharmacist for details.
We can dispense medication at both Danes Dyke and Cloughton surgeries for patients who live more than 1.6 kilometres from a chemist and you may choose which surgery is most convenient for you. We can also dispense medication for temporary residents seen at Danes Dyke or Cloughton. If you are unable to get to the surgery we can deliver your medication on Friday's between 10am and 3pm and we respectfully request that anyone wanting their medication delivered is at home between these hours. However, we do need to have received your request for medication by the Monday evening prior to the delivery day.
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.
Prescription costs as of April 1 2017:
The current prescription charge is £8.60 (£16.80 per pair of elastic hosiery).
A three monthly PPC is £29.10. This saves you money if you need four or more items in three months.
A 12-month certificate is £104.00 and saves money if 13 or more items are needed in 12 months.
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
