Changes to how your medication is ordered
Sometimes patients receive medicines they don't actually use, or use only occasionally. This creates unnecessary waste and can be potentially harmful if a medication is taken that is no longer needed.
With this in mind, the practice has decided to change the way in which repeat medicines are ordered.
We feel by encouraging patients to order their own medication ensures they are taking responsibility for their own health care.
From 10/02/17 your Pharmacy will no longer be ordering your repeat prescription for you. You will be responsible for ordering the medicine you require.
There are numerous ways you can do this:
Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be generated.
This affects the ordering of your prescription only. Once you have ordered your medicine it can be collected from the surgery by yourself or your chosen pharmacy, and dispensed in the usual manner.
Any concerns or complaints should be raised with the Bradford CCG’s patient support line. Information can be found on the CCG website or call on 01274 237562 or email BradfordCCGspatientsupport@bradford.nhs.uk
Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS)
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.
Prescription costs as of April 1 2017
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
Order PPC Telephone No. 03003301341 or on-line

Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
