Repeat Prescriptions

The majority of patients on regular medication are able to have their prescriptions sent electronically direct to a pharmacy of their choice. We request you allow two working days for completion. To request your medication, the preferred method is by using Online Access or via the NHS App. You can also request by sending us an email to selicb.woodlandspractice@nhs.net.

Please note, in order to eliminate possible error REPEAT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS CANNOT BE TAKEN OVER THE TELEPHONE EXCEPT FOR HOUSEBOUND PATIENTS. If required, the prescription can be collected for you by a local pharmacy and dispensed ready for you to collect, or delivered to the housebound.

Patients are able to make and cancel appointments, request repeat medication and view their medical record directly online through our EMIS Access system.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.

NHS charges

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 pre payment certificate.
