Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered online via the link at the top of this page.

Alternatively please deliver, fax or post written requests for repeat prescriptions to the practice.

Allow two working days for collection. If you would like us to post your prescription please provide a stamped addressed envelope.

If you or someone you care for use the same medicines regularly, you may be able to benefit from repeat dispensing from the pharmacist. This means you won’t have to visit the surgery or make an appointment to see the doctor every time you need more medicine—please ask your pharmacist for further details.

Your pharmacist can also help you with a wide range of minor ailments—see section on the minor ailments scheme. For reasons of safety, requests cannot be taken over the telephone.

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): £9.00
  • 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 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
