The Partners are pleased to announce that our merger with Boxwell Road Surgery has been approved from 1st July 2018. The combined surgery will be known as Berkhamsted Group Practice. Our clinical systems will be combined on the afternoon of Friday 27th July and patients of both practices will be able to see a clinician at Boxwell Road or at Milton House from Monday 30th July.
These will only be issued with the agreement of a doctor.
If you are registered for online services then you will also be able to order your repeat medication in this way. If you are not registered for this service you may do so by contacting Reception.
You may also request a repeat prescription by completing and signing the right hand side of your prescription and returning it to the surgery.
Please note: We do not accept repeat prescription ordering by email. The only electronic ordering method is through our online services mentioned above.
Please order your prescription by 10:30 a.m. and allow at least two working days for the prescription to be prepared. If preferred, we can arrange for the prescription to go to a chemist of your choice. Please ensure this is stated at the time the prescription is requested and allow one extra working day.
Please note that:
Telephone requests for repeat items CANNOT be accepted
Requests received after 10:30 a.m. will not be processed until the following working day; the two working day timescale starts then.
Medication and any other items issued to you by a hospital on a prescription should be obtained from the hospital pharmacy.
If you require us to issue the prescription, you must be prepared to wait the normal 2 working days for us to do this.
If you require the prescription sooner you will need to go back to the hospital pharmacy for the items.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
Please allow two full working days between requesting and collecting your medication. Please do not ask us to provide a prescription in a shorter timescale as it is very unlikely we will be able to do so.
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.
