Repeat Prescriptions

If you are registered for online services you can order via the link at the top of this page.

The Online Services system remembers which medications you are on and makes requesting repeat prescriptions faster and easier. You can register by clicking here.

If you do not have a Patient Access account, don't worry, you can use the online form to the right or tear off the repeat slip from your previous prescription and tick the items required, this can be posted in the black post box at the front of the building.

Please allow 2 working days before collecting your prescription from your nominated pharmacy.

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.
