Repeat Prescriptions

Routine repeat prescriptions can be ordered in the following ways:

  • In person - hand your repeat slip in at reception having clearly marked the items required.
  • Online - please ask at reception to register for our on-line services to access Emis Web online
  • By local pharmacy - speak to your local pharmacist to register to use this service
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.

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

Urgent Prescriptions

Requests for urgent prescriptions may be made by telephone and will be ready to be collected by 18:00 the same day.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, pharmacist, 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): £9.35
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
  • 3-month PPC: £30.25

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.
