    Do not telephone for repeat prescription requests, as we do not offer repeats by telephone.

    Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.

    At intervals, you will be asked to see the doctor for a medication review. Some drugs will not normally be given by repeat prescription, for safety reasons, and requests may need to be discussed with the doctor.

    Certain medicines that were started by the Hospital (eg warfarin, drugs affecting the immune system) require regular blood test monitoring.  The doctor cannot issue prescriptions without up to date results, please speak to a GP if this applies to you.

    We are now able to send prescriptions electronically to a pharmacy that you choose, please speak to reception for more information or your local pharmacist.

    Please allow 48 working hours before collection (for requests left before 12 noon.)

    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.

    • The current prescription charge is £8.60 per item (£17.20 per pair of elastic hosiery).
    • A three monthly PPC is £29.10 and will save you money if you need more than three prescribed items in three months.  
    • A 12-month certificate is £104.00 and will save you money if you need more than 12 prescribed items in a year.

    Prescriotion Payment Certificates are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week.
