HOW TO ORDER A REPEAT PRESCRIPTION

If you need a regular supply of medication, you can request this in person, stating the name and strength of the medication you require.

Additionally, you can use any of the following:

We aim to provide a repeat prescription within three working days. This period is required to allow production of the prescription and for it to be reviewed by your doctor, after which the pharmacy will prepare the medication. Please order in good time, as a prescription will not be available to collect the same day it is ordered.

  • Requests received after Midday will be treated as having arrived the following morning.
  • Requests received after Midday on a Friday will be treated as having arrived on Monday morning.

Prescription Charges & Exemptions

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.

Emergency Medication

If you run out of or lose your medication when we are closed, most Somerset pharmacies can provide an emergency supply at your request.

You can also request emergency medication while on holiday, but if you're away from home, the pharmacy may ask you to speak to us first, in order to authorise the medication.

Self-Care Medicines - Think 'Pharmacy'

Over the last year, Dr A R Bridge & Partners spent over £52,000 on GP appointments and prescriptions for common issues, such as hay fever, dandruff and mouth ulcers.
