Repeat Prescriptions

Please place all written requests in the box provided or ask at the dispensary to have them manage your prescription. 

Alternatively, you can order online via the link at the top of this page. First-time users will need to complete a simple one-off registration.

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

Dispensary

The practice provides dispensing services to all our patients that live over one mile away from a chemist. It is open for the collection of medication as follows:

  • Monday – Friday 08:30 - 18:15
  • Closed daily 13:00 – 14:00

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.
