Claverley Surgery would like to remind you that if you have a cough or fever DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY!

We are doing our bit to try and protect our most vulnerable patients.

28 Day Repeat Prescribing

A 28 day repeat prescribing interval is recognised by the NHS as making the best possible balance between patient convenience, good medical practice and minimal drug wastage. Prescribing for shorter periods has been widely promoted across England. Research by the National Audit Office in 2007 has shown home and excess medicine stock values for patients prescribed a 28 day supply of a medicine to be one third less than those for patients receiving prescriptions to cover 56 days. In addition, a Bradford University Study concluded that the NHS cost of prescriptions issued for 56 days’ supply is greater than those for 28 days.

 

From 1st April 2020 the NHS Prescription Charge is £9.35

 

The NHS prescription charge is a contribution to the NHS; it is not a payment to the surgery or its dispensary and is not related to the cost of your medicines(s).

If you need 4 or more prescriptions in three months or 13 or more prescriptions a year, you could save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate.

We actively encourage our patients to consider this as it covers any prescription during this period of time, eg one off antibiotic prescriptions or creams etc. in addition to any regular repeat prescriptions.

Ask a member of the dispensary team for more details or visit www.nhs.uk/healthcosts
