Prescription Information

What is an NHS prescription?

An NHS prescription is an order from a practitioner i.e. a doctor for the preparation and administration of a drug or device for a patient. Each item on your prescription may cost you a set fee of £7.40 unless you have an exemption or hold a pre-payment certificate.

Who is entitled to an Exemption?

There are number of different categories which entitles patients to receive free prescriptions. These categories can be found on the back of your prescription.

What is a Repeat Prescription?

This is a prescription for a regularly needed medicine that has been prescribed before and can be renewed without the doctor having to see you. These are for long-term medical conditions, although the doctor will want to see you from time to time for a regular review of your medicines.

What are acute prescriptions?

These are one off prescriptions which are issued by the doctor to treat short term conditions. i.e. a course of antibiotics for an infection or painkillers for an injury.

How do I pay for my prescriptions?

When an order has been placed, if you don't have a valid exemption and your order is being delivered, you will be contacted via telephone to make payment for your items. If you're collecting from one of our stores, you can pay on collection.

Repeat Prescriptions

Who can use the Repeat Prescription Service?

Our repeat prescription service is open to anyone that receives regular repeat medication. These are items that can be found on your repeat request slip issued to you by the doctor. Any other items requested are likely to be refused by the surgery without the doctor seeing you first.

How do I signup to your Repeat Prescription Service?

This is an incredibly fast and simple process, click on the Sign Up Button at the top or bottom of any page on this site. Then fill in the information we have requested. All information is required to ensure we are able to request your medicines and collect them from your surgery.

How will I know when you need to see the doctor?

Quite often the surgery will give you a reminder of when you need to see the doctor upon collecting your prescription. We’ll take care of this for you, if a doctor’s note or appointment request is received by us when we collect your medication, we will pass this to you when you receive your medication, ensuring you are kept completely informed.

How will I know when I can collect my medication from a Hayden’s Pharmacy?

We ask that you allow 5 days from ordering your medication before collecting it from your selected pharmacy. This allows us time to deal with any issues that may arise, and ensure everything is ready when you come to collect. You are then free to decide when to collect your medication.

What if I need my medication sooner than 5 days?

If you are running very low on your medication and are unable to wait the full 5 days, you can contact your regular Hayden’s Pharmacy directly, they will endeavor to obtain your prescription for you sooner.

If you are a delivery customer, please call 123 Repeats directly on 01502 524156, in these emergencies we will try to obtain and deliver your medicine sooner.
