Order your repeat prescriptions on line
Repeat prescriptions are computerised and the re-order slip is on the right-hand side of your prescription. You are able to order your repeat medication by handing your slip in to reception, by fax or you can also request repeat prescriptions online; please contact the surgery for details and a unique personal password.
Please allow 48 working hours before collection from the surgery and up to 72 from the pharmacy.
You can also order your repeat prescriptions online by going to www.patient.co.uk and logging in with your details.
If you have not yet registered for online prescriptions and appointments please ask in surgery for details.
Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
Prescription (per item): £8.05
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.
