Prescriptions

Online Prescriptions Service

If you are registered for online services, you can use the tool above to request a repeat prescription. If you are not registered you can still fill in a request form (link just below), which will be automatically emailed to us at the surgery. Another great tool at this time is the NHS App. You can download this by following the link in the orange section further down.

Repeat Prescriptions

If you have been given a repeat prescription slip, please indicate which items are required and which of the local pharmacists you wish the prescription to be sent to, and leave it at reception.

Repeat prescription requests are dealt with twice daily but they need to be checked and extra time is required for the chemist to check your drugs are in stock,  so please allow at least 4 working days for the process. Only a certain number of repeat prescriptions are allowed before it is necessary to be reassessed by the doctor; regular medication usually means that regular check-ups are also necessary.

Please note: a repeat prescription for regular medications can only be issued at the doctor's discretion. Repeat prescriptions cannot be arranged over the telephone by our administrative staff.

There may be occasions when the doctor does not feel that prescribing drugs is clinically necessary. Repeat prescriptions will only be given where the doctor feels that this is clinically appropriate.

Online Prescriptions

If you are registered for online services, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link at the top of this page to use this service.

Prescription queries are only dealt with

Mon-Fri 10:00 – 11:00 or 14:00 – 15:00

However, you can leave your repeat slip or a note (explaining your query or request) with reception outside of these times for them to deal with during the next admin period.

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.
