Dr Vicky Pitts has been a GP at Broadmead for the past 8 years. Vicky has decided to leave the practice to seek a new position with the option of a potential partnership. Vicky will be leaving us in April 20, this is a sad loss for us but we wish her well for her future. We appreciate this can be unsettling for our patients so if you wish to chat to Vicky or Dixine (PM) about alternative GPs, then please do not hesitate to telephone to book an appointment. We are currently recruiting a replacement for Vicky.
If you are registered with the practice we will be able to arrange your repeat prescription for you. You can get a prescription request form from reception or we can post / email one out to you. You can also email (email@example.com) or fax (0117 954 9829/19).
Registed patients can also order online via the link at the top of this page. New users are required to complete a simple one-off registration.
If you would like your request sent directly to a pharmacy please indicate on the form where you would like it to be sent. If you would like it sent to your home address send a stamped addressed envelope with your request form.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse or practice pharmacist, 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.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed (or 72 hours if you are collecting from the pharmacy) and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.
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 15 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.
