PIP APPLICATIONS

As a Practice we no longer complete requests from DLA / Attendance allowance / PIP forms OR for supporting evidence.

We strongly believe that to get an accurate assessment a face to face consultation is vital.  This needs to be carried out by the agency making the decision about your application, not by your GP.

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online via the link at the top of this page, submitting your order in writing at reception, by posting your order into the practice or through a representative.

Prescriptions will ONLY be available 2 working days after your order has been received. 

If you have given consent for a chemist to organise your repeat prescription order,  THIS WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE AT YOUR CHEMIST 3 WORKING DAYS/ 72 HOURS AFTER YOUR ORDER HAS BEEN RECEIVED AT THE PRACTICE.  If you have any queries about these orders please contact your nominated chemist in the first instance. 

Patients requesting prescriptions for acute situations should realise that the doctor may decline, or feel that the patient should be examined; otherwise, these prescriptions will be ready after 17:00 that day. 

Hospital letters should be delivered promptly to the surgery so that prescriptions can be prepared.  These prescriptions will be ready 24 hours later.  Hospital wards are expected to provide a month’s supply of medication needed on discharge.  Patients should wait for these to be provided. 

Medication Reviews

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.
