Our preferred way of receiving repeat prescription requests is by subscribing to the Patient Access (see online registrations) or downloading the NHS App.
Please can you nominate a pharmacy of your choice to have your script sent directly there. You can do this by either letting us know or asking the pharmacist.
Repeat prescriptions are computerised and can be ordered either by posting or dropping your request into the surgery.
Alternatively we offer an online service via the link at the top of this page. You will need to register for this service by emailing the surgery with your request so we can email the registration form to you.
For safety reasons we cannot accept repeat prescription requests over the phone.
Please allow 5 working days notice for requests to be processed and ready for collection.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.
For more information please click here.
You will be required to attend the surgery from time to time for a medication review with a doctor.
Should you fail to attend after 3 requests to do so your prescription will be withheld until you make an appointment.
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
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.
