For patients on regular medication which your doctor is happy to repeat without seeing you every time. Orders can be placed in the following ways:
To help us and to avoid unnecessary trips to the surgery can patients please allow at least 3 full working days for dispensary to process your repeat prescriptions. For example, if you order on Monday afternoon then it will be ready on Thursday afternoon. Order Friday afternoon it will be ready Wednesday afternoon. Remember to take weekends and Bank Holidays into account, i.e. if you order on a Saturday or Sunday you can collect on a Thursday.
If, for any reason, you need your medication urgently ring the surgery on 01433 621557 and explain your need. If the Hope surgery is not open, then please listen to the out-of-hours message and telephone the number given.
The dispensary is open for the collection of prescriptions during the Hope Surgery opening times. The dispensary hatch is closed when our dispensary staff have quiet time to concentrate on the repeat dispensing. During these times you can pick up prescriptions from our front desk. If you are unable to collect your prescription and you have nobody to collect it for you, then please register for our weekly delivery service.
If you live within a mile of the Hathersage Chemist “as the crow flies” you can either collect a signed prescription from the Evelyn Medical Centre or request that the prescription be sent to the Hathersage Chemist for collection there.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
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.
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.
