Repeat Prescriptions

Please note; the surgery no longer accepts repeat prescription requests from community pharmacies.

You can order a prescription by completing the order slip attached to your last prescription or by completing an order slip in the surgery.

Alternatively you may order repeat medication online via the link at the top of this page. Please use the link below for instructions on using SystmOne Online.

For patient safety reasons we cannot accept repeat prescriptions via the telephone.

Please allow 48 hours (2 working days) before you collect your prescription.

Please note that acute requests and requests from the hospital take 5 working days to be processed. Doctor will review the documents and decide whether or not it is appropriate to issue them.

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.
