Repeat Prescriptions

If you need a repeat prescription you may either request your medication by clicking on the link above, or post, fax or deliver your repeat prescription request to the surgery at least four working days before you intend to collect your medication.

Fax Number 01666 841074.

It is also now possible to use our new automated system where patients can pick up their prescription and re-order medication for the following month at the same time, which reduces the number of visits to the surgery and ensures medication is ready for collection at the appropriate time.

Please note our online ordering system links directly with our clinical system, making it simpler for you and easier for us.  If you don't have your log in details to access the new system, please ask at reception.  Please ensure you have some form of identification with you when you collect your details. 

Repeat prescriptions should not be ordered over the telephone.

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.
