Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:

  • By post, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope if you wish us to post your prescription back - otherwise it will be left in the surgery to collect
  • Hand delivered.  There is a post box in the entrance to avoid you having to queue at the reception desk

Please use the other half of your prescription to request items.  If you do not have this, complete one of the prescription request forms which are available from reception. 

To register for Patient On-Line Access please download and complete the form below and bring it to the surgery with your ID to register.

Collections

You need to allow 2 working days for your prescription to be prepared. 

Prescriptions can be collected during normal surgery hours.

Medication Reviews

If you take regular medication you need regular health checks.  Please ensure you see a doctor at least once a year or more often if necessary.  If you don’t you may be asked to make an appointment before being able to get your prescription

Prescription Fees

Help with NHS costs

In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:

  • those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
  • those who are age exempt
  • those with certain medical conditions
  • More information is available at NHS Choices

NHS Charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

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.
