Noticeboard

PRESCRIPTION ORDERING CHANGES - From 21st September 2020 you will have to order repeat medication directly via your GP practice, not via your pharmacy or medical equipment supplier. You can order in the following ways: online via Patient Access, by email to cuccg.atkinson.prescriptions@nhs.net , by dropping the request at the surgery or via post.  If you can’t order by these means and don’t have a family member, friend or carer able to order for you, please contact us.


Please note this only affects the ordering of your prescription. When you order your repeat prescription directly through your GP practice, your pharmacy will continue to collect or receive your prescription as before. Pharmacies may also continue to deliver your prescription if you currently receive this service.

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.
