Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

Repeat prescriptions do need to be reviewed on a regular basis, usually every 6-12 months around the month of your birthday. The date when your review is due is printed on the right hand side of your prescription.
If you have a chronic condition for which you see the nurse, the medication reviews will be carried out by the nurse in clinic. You may not need to make an appointment with the doctor.
The Practice may conduct Medicines Management Reviews of medications prescribed to its patients. This service performs a review of prescribed medications to ensure patients receive the most appropriate, up to date and cost effective treatments. This service may be provided directly by the practice or by members of the Sheffield CCG Medicines Management Team.
We now have a clinical pharmacist, Ms. Georgina Biggin, working at the surgery.
Clinical pharmacists are highly qualified health professionals who train for many years to become specialists in medicines and how they work. They work directly with you, as part of the general practice team, to make sure your medicines help you get better and stay well.
You will see your clinical pharmacist when you need expert advice on your medicines to ensure you get the maximum benefit.
Clinical pharmacists can support you with:
- Reviewing your medicines
- Medication side effects
- Medicine changes after a stay in hospital
- Common illnesses
- Long-term conditions
As with your doctor or practice nurse, you will encounter telephone appointments or see your clinical pharmacist in a private consultation room. Seeing your pharmacist does not replace appointments with other healthcare professionals. It ensures that our healthcare team can provide you with the best professional care to suit your needs.
Help with NHS costs
In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:
- those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
- those who are age exempt
- those with certain medical conditions
- More information is available at NHS Choices
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.35
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
- 3-month PPC: £30.25
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.
