Hawes lane Surgery has a good working relationship with many local pharmacies who can collect prescriptions from the surgery and arrange delivery if required.
If you are taking medication on a long term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription by dropping in a note of what you require to the surgery or posting your prescription request.
You can also fax your request to 0121 508 9019 or complete the online form on this page.
We always aim to have your prescription ready for collection within 3 working days.
You can help us by ordering your medication in plenty of time - please order before you run out.
Please note that only items specifically listed for repeat on the computer can be obtained in this way. For all other items, even where they have been prescribed in the past, you will need to discuss your request with a doctor.
From time to time you may also find a message on your prescription prompting you to see the doctor for review. This is part of the Practice’s routine monitoring of all medications and you should make an appointment for review of your prescription. We may have to alter or discontinue your prescription if you do not attend for review.
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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
