Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
Please note from Tuesday 24th November 2015, Little Bushey Surgery will be moving over to electronic prescribing. The ordering of repeat prescriptions remains the same but from this date prescriptions can be collected from your nominated pharmacy.
If you don't have a nominated pharmacy you can either nominate at the surgery or call into one of the local pharmacies to sign up for electronic prescribing.
This service is for your regular/repeat prescription. If you require additional/alternative medication, you would need to book an appointment with the GP.

Prescriptions Charges and 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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £8.40
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
- 3-month PPC: £29.10
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
