Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

If your doctor agrees, repeat prescriptions can be ordered and collected from our reception.

Each prescription will have an up-to-date medication list attached. Keep it and use it to re-order.

Repeat prescriptions should be requested with 2 working days notice between 10.00 am – 6.30 pm Monday to Friday either

  • Online via the link at the top of this page
  • By phone
  • Letter
  • By calling into reception

If you would like your prescription to be collected by a nominated pharmacy please make it clear when ordering.

For each item on the medication list there may be an expiry date. This is to remind you to attend for a routine check of your medical problem with either the nurse or doctor before your repeat prescription is further extended.

We would encourage you to order all the prescription items you will require in the following month at the same time.

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): £9.35
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
  • 3-month PPC: £30.25

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.
