Rawnsley Surgery have introduced a new text messaging service to help patients with Appointment Reminders, Cancelling Appointments and Health Campaigns. Can you please ensure that you inform a member of the Reception Team of your mobile telephone number as soon as possible? Thank you.
Rawnsley Surgery operates an Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) - what does this mean for you??
Please allow 72 hours before collecting your medication.
It is important for you to nominate a Pharmacy as soon as possible as your prescription will remain in the Surgery until it is collected and this may result in a delay in you receiving your medication.
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 14 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.
