Prescriptions

Please note that as from the 14th September, prescriptions will again be available to collect from the Sleaford branch for those patients who would normally collect from there. Prior to this date, all medications should be collected from Millview at Heckington.

Patients on long-term medication who have been approved for repeat prescriptions have a number of options open to them when it comes to re-ordering:

  • Drop off – put your repeat slip in the box provided in front of the dispensary/reception at Sleaford (or use the post box.
  • By Post – send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • By Fax – to 01529 460087 (Heckington) / 01529 305589 (Sleaford).

We do not accept telephone ordering of repeat prescriptions

Dispensary Opening Times

The dispensary at Heckington is open between 08:30 – 13:00 and 14:00 – 17:30.

Please note we are a 28 day prescribing practice. For urgent medication queries outside of surgery hours please ring 111.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication have to see either a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.  A medication review form (pink slip) will be attached to your medication when the review is due.  Please present this form at reception when booking your medication review appointment to ensure you are seen by the right clinician.

Please allow 72 WORKING HOURS between requesting and collecting your medication.

If you request over a Bank Holiday then the 72 hours starts from the day that the Surgery reopens.

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.
