Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are produced by our computer and checked by the doctor. We require 2 full working days notice.

You will receive a 'tear-off' slip with each prescription which lists the medicines you received by repeat prescription. When you require repeat medication you should return the slip to the surgery indicating which items you require.

Please check the items carefully to ensure they are correct.

Alternatively you can register for our online services.

Please note requests cannot be accepted over the phone (except for housebound patients) as it may lead to mistakes and can block emergency calls.

If you find our opening times inconvenient please enclose a stamped addressed envelope and we will be happy to post your prescription back to you.

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.

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.
