Repeat Prescriptions

You can order a repeat prescription in a number of ways:

You will receive an acknowledgement your request has been actioned. Please allow up to 5 days to collect your prescription from your nominated pharmacy. 

Repeat Dispensing

Instead of ordering your script from the surgery you can go straight to your high street pharmacist to collect your medication for 6 or 12 months, dependant on your condition. Suitable for patients on stable medication who do not require reviews more than every 6 months such as; raised BP treatment, diabetes, thyroid replacement etc. Please ask for details.

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.

Please note that in normal circumstances we require 2 working days to process repeat prescription requests; e.g. requests for repeat prescriptions delivered to the surgery on a Friday will not be available until the Tuesday afternoon the following week.

If there is a query with your request you may need to allow more time, i.e. 3 or more working days. The receptionist will advise you if there are likely to be any problems. This is because your doctor may not be at the practice to look at your request on the day that you bring it to the surgery.


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): £9.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25

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.

  • 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.
