Please note that we advise repeat prescriptions will take 48 hours to process.
Please note that repeat prescriptions are not to be collected between 08.30 and 10.30 am unless by prior arrangement.
You can also order your repeat prescriptions online day or night by requesting a registration form from Reception. This will include the log-in details required to open an account. Please note, however, that the collection times remain the same.
If you order your prescription on line, and you are overdue for your medication review, we will not proceed with your request.
Once you have received your registration form, please use the link on this page.
This is a part dispensing practice, which means that if you live within one mile of the pharmacy in Tuxford you must take your prescription to a pharmacy for dispensing. Please note that this can be any pharmacy of your choice and not necessarily Tuxford Pharmacy.
However, if you would have serious difficulty in obtaining necessary drugs or appliances from a pharmacy, i.e. if you are housebound and have no regular carer to assist you, you may apply to have your prescriptions dispensed by your GP. Please ask our receptionist for details. If you live outside the one mile area, your prescriptions will be dispensed by our trained dispensers and ready to collect at the surgery after consultation with the GP.
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.
As of 1st April 2018, the charges are:
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £8.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
If you have a pre-payment or exemption certificate please ensure you bring it with you when you come to collect your prescription as our dispensary staff are required to check it every time.
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone 01234 567890.
