Repeat Prescriptions

You can now order your repeat prescription online via the link at the top of this page.

To order a repeat prescription please tick the items you require on your print out from your previous prescription.

You can either send your repeat prescription request to the surgery by post or by hand delivery to the post box next to reception or through the letter box if the surgery is closed. If you have a query regarding your medication you may hand your repeat prescription to a receptionist over the counter.

Collections

Repeat prescriptions received after 08:00 at the surgery will be available for collection after 13:30 the following working day. If there are any problems with requested medication then this may take longer.

If you prefer you may attach a stamped addressed envelope to your request and we will post it back to you.

Some of the local pharmacies offer a repeat prescription service; please ask at your pharmacy if you require more information.

Please note we are unable to deal with your repeat prescription request over the telephone or via fax.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

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.
