Patients eligible for repeat prescriptions can order medication in a number of ways:
In the interests of safety we DO NOT accept requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Please note that only items appearing on the repeat list will be issued.
£2million pounds a year is wasted in Bolton partly due to ordering medications that are not used. Please order only what you need. If a chemist is ordering on your behalf, they MUST contact you before ordering your prescription to ensure that they are only ordering what you require.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see the doctor for a review after 6 months supply of medication have been issued. Notification should appear on your repeat slip.
Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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.
