Prescription Costs and Free Prescriptions

Order Your Repeat Prescription Online

Repeat prescriptions are available for any patient who is on long-term medication authorised by the doctor, and all repeat prescriptions will be available within 48 hours of correct ordering. Repeat medication requests should be made using the tear-off slip provided with your prescription or online.

Patient Access Prescription Service

Request your repeat prescriptions online at

Request your repeat prescriptions quickly online by logging into your account via the link at the top of this page. You can review the progress of your repeat prescriptions and any message the practice may have sent you.

Please note that medication requests cannot be made by telephone, though you can register with a chemist of your choice to arrange ordering and delivery. You will need to make an appointment to see the doctor for any medication other than that on your authorised repeat slip.

Electronic Prescriptions

Electronic prescriptions are now available, and this means that you can nominate a pharmacy of your choice, where you can pick up (or have delivered) your prescription. Please ask staff for details or register at

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

Prescription Queries

Should you wish to discuss your medication or have a query regarding medication that is currently not on repeat or have a letter from the hospital  – you can discuss this with a member of the reception team. If you could, please allow extra time and discuss after 10am.  The practice is receiving a high demand of appointments during our first few hours and for any queries, we would ask you to either call into the surgery or to speak to the reception after 10am when the rush has died down and our staff can give you their full attention.

Prescription Costs 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.

Free Prescriptions

Some patients may be eligible for free prescriptions, you are exempt from prescription costs if you are 60 or over, under 16, between 16 and 18 and in full-time education, are pregnant, have certain medical conditions or physical disabilities, are an NHS inpatient or have a war pension certificate. 

You may also receive free prescriptions if you require income support such as universal credit. Find out if you are eligible for free prescriptions using this online form. More details about free prescriptions can be found on the NHS website.

NHS Prescription Costs

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription cost (per item): £9.35
  • 3-month Prescription Prepayment Certificate (PPC): £30.25
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months or more than 15 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
