If you need a further supply of your medicines please hand in the computer slip with the items you need clearly marked or write down what you want and either hand it in, post it to the surgery, request via our online services protocol or telephone the surgery between 10am – 5pm. Your prescription can then be collected from a chemist of your choice. We can send prescriptions electronically to a chemist of your choice - please advise the receptionist accordingly. Please allow 48 hours for the signed prescription to be collected.
You can book appointments and request repeat prescriptions online using Patient Access. Please ask at reception for an access letter to create an account.
Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
In England, most working age adults have to pay prescription charges. Certain groups are entitled to free NHS prescriptions and some prescribed items are always free, including contraceptives and medication for hospital inpatients.
From 1 April 2019, the charges are:
- Prescription (per item): £9.00
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
- 3-month PPC: £29.10
- If you will need 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. The charge for a single prescription item is £9.00, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £29.10 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
