Prescriptions

Patients on repeat prescriptions will be automatically issued with a white re-order slip whenever they obtain a prescription. This should be torn off and used to order a new prescription by ticking the box next to the item(s) required. If you do not have this slip, please put your request in writing as we do not accept requests over the phone, except in an emergency.

If you need the prescription posting to you, please enclose an SAE with your re-order slip. You can also arrange for the local pharmacist to collect and dispense your prescriptions for you.

Alternatively you can order online. New users are required to complete a simple registration prior to using the service.

Please note repeat prescriptions for the oral contraceptive will not be issued without seeing a nurse for a check-up. Please make sure you make an appointment before you run out.

Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

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): £8.05
  • 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.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
