The simplest way to order a repeat prescription is via the online Patient Access service or the NHS App. To register for either of these services, please click the relevant link below.
Other ways include:
Submitting the repeat slip of paper attached to your last prescription, ticking the items needed or put the request in writing via email or post into the surgery.
For digital requests, please allow 3 working days for us to process your prescription. (excluding weekends and public holidays)
For paper requests, please allow 5 working days for us to process your prescription. (excluding weekends and public holidays)
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.
Prescription (per item): £9.35
3-month PPC: £30.25
12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
If you are expecting to pay for four or more prescription items in three months or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
