Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat precriptions will nomally be ready  for collection four full working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays) from your nominated local pharmacy, following  your request arriving at the Surgery.

When placing an order for your repeat prescription you can nominate a Pharmacy of your choice, if you haven't already, which enables GP's and Practice Nurses to send prescriptions electronically.  This makes the prescibing and dispensing process more efficient and convenient for patients and staff.

We will be phasing out paper prescriptions

You can request your medication using our online services; SystmOnline via the link at the top of this page.

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): £9.00
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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.

  • Telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030
  • General Public - Buy or Renew a PPC On-line

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
