The practice has a computerised system for those patients who require regular repeat prescriptions. You will find a slip attached to your prescription. When you need your repeat prescription post this or bring it to the surgery.

We do not accept prescription requests over the phone.

Please allow at least 48 hours before returning to collect it.

Your repeat prescription will not be issued until its due date, even if we receive your request early.

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.
