Order Prescriptions

How to order repeat prescriptions:

SURGERY

Fill in the repeat slip from your previous prescription or pick up a form at the practice. Once you have completed the form, you can post it into the box provided for requests at reception.

The box is emptied periodically throughout the day.

All repeat prescriptions will be made available 48 working hours after the order is placed. If you find you need your medication more urgently than this, please speak with a member of staff.

NHS Prescription Charges

Most adults in England will need to pay prescription charges. Some items are always free, such as contraception and medicines prescribed for hospital patients.

From 1 April 2021, the charges are £9.35 per item

If you know you will have to pay for a lot of NHS prescriptions, it may be cheaper to buy a prescription pre-payment certificate (PPC). A PPC covers all of your NHS prescriptions, including NHS dental prescriptions, no matter how many items you need.

Choose from the options below:
3-month PPC – £30.25

Best suited to those who need more than 3 prescribed items in 3 months.

12-month PPC – £108.10

Best suited to those who need more than 11 prescribed items in 1 year.
