Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

If agreed by the doctor these can be obtained by either sending in a stamped addressed envelope with your request, or by leaving the request in the prescription box in the waiting room. It will then be ready for collection or posted 72 hours later.

We regret we cannot accept requests over the telephone as inaccuracies or serious mistakes could occur.

You can also view and request your repeat prescription online. Please ask our reception staff for details.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England.

Prescription Charges

  • Single charge: £9.00 (up from £8.80 in April 2019)
  • 3 month PPC (no change): £29.10
  • 12 month PPC (no change): £104.00
