Electronic Prescribing Service

This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.

This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.

To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.

Collection of Medication

Non-urgent advice: Patient Notice

Please allow 48 hours from request to collection for your prescription to be processed

If you wish us to post your prescription to you please enclose a stamped addressed envelope.

Delivery or collection: If you have an arrangement with your local pharmacy to have your repeat medication delivered, or you simply prefer to collect your prescription from a pharmacy rather than the surgery, please state which pharmacy by choosing from the drop-down list on the online form where is says “Collect from”.

Please note If you have never had your medication delivered before but would like to, contact the pharmacy of your choice first.

Under the “Care in the Pharmacy” scheme, your local pharmacy may be able to prescribe treatment for minor ailments such as colds, coughs, sore throats, rashes etc. Prescription exemption fees will apply.

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.

NHS Hormone Replacement Therapy Prescription Prepayment Certificate (HRT PPC)

If you pay for NHS prescribed HRT medicine 3 or more times in 12 months, an HRT PPC could save you money.

Each item on an NHS prescription usually costs £9.65. You can buy an HRT PPC for a one-off payment of £19.30 (the cost of two single items).

The HRT PPC covers an unlimited number of certain HRT medicines for 12 months, regardless of why they are prescribed.

The HRT PPC does not cover all HRT medicines. Check if it covers your HRT medicine.

If your HRT medicine is not covered, or you also get prescriptions for items other than HRT medicine, you may save more with a 3 or 12 month PPC that covers all NHS prescriptions.

Before buying an HRT PPC, check if you’re entitled to free NHS prescriptions and other help with health costs using our eligibility checker.
