Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

If you are on regular medication, your pharmacist will issue a computerised repeat prescription form.

Please use the tear-off slip attached to your prescription to re-order repeat prescriptions. These can be put in the post box on the wall outside the surgery.

Please tick each item clearly on the tear-off slip to indicate which repeat medication you require.  Please note this service is for repeat medications only.

You can also order your repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page; please ask at reception to register.

In this difficult time please allow up to 72 hours for your repeat prescriptions to be processed by the surgery. 

Please note: during the COVID19 pandemic patients will be permitted to re-order repeat prescriptions on the telephone, this is a temporary measure only.

Medication Reviews

It will be necessary for you to be seen at intervals to review your medication.

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.
