Repeat Prescriptions

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.

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.
