Repeat Prescriptions

We do not take repeat prescriptions over the telephone for reasons of safety and accuracy. If you require a repeat prescription:

  • Please tick counter half of the prescription for medication required and hand it into the reception. Please allow 48 hours to process.
  • You may ask the reception in person.
  • You may also write in or send us an email to request your medicines. Please remember to enclose an SAE.
  • You may request your repeat prescriptions via the NHS App.
  • We accept repeat prescriptions online via the link at the top of this page provided prior arrangements are made with Anne (read more HERE).

In keeping with national guidelines, we are in the process of replacing many branded medicines with unbranded drugs. The tablets may look different but they are quite safe and just as effective.

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): £9.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25

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.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
