Repeat Prescriptions

All medication requests must be made using the attached medication slip that accompanies every prescription. Please tick all the items needed, items not ticked will not be issued. Put the completed slip in the post box by the side of the reception desk.

Prescription requests can also be posted into the mail box to the right, by the Health Centre main door.  A blank slip is available if you have mislaid your original but this must be completed fully with the details of your prescription request.

You may if you wish send us your slips through the post and, if you provide us with a stamped addressed envelope we will return it to you.

Prescriptions will be ready 48 hours later.

Telephone requests for prescriptions will not be accepted unless you are housebound.

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): £9.00
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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.
