Prescriptions

If you are on long term treatment of any kind, you will be supplied with a repeat prescription list that must be agreed by the doctor.

Please note you must give your repeat prescription order a minimum of three working days to be completed.

If you are requesting a prescription early, please specify in detail the reason for this on your request.

You can order your repeat prescription by:

  • Ticking the items you require and bring your list to the surgery, allowing three working days to prepare your prescription.
  • Posting your prescription to us, but please remember to enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope and allow at least three working days depending on postage used.
  • Online via the link at the top of this page

Requests cannot be accepted over the phone because of the risk of mistakes.

You will be asked to make an telephone appointment for items that are not on repeat prescription.

Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)

It is now possible to have your repeat prescriptions sent electronically from the GP to a pharmacy of your choice. Ask at reception or at a pharmacy for a nomination form which you complete and hand in to your chosen pharmacy.

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.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.

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 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
