Prescription Information

Repeat Prescriptions

If you are taking long-term medication it is important you request your repeat medication before you run out. We require at least three working days’ notice to prepare your prescription.

Visit our Prescriptions and Medicines Centre here – as well as online you can use a re-order form or a clearly-written request in our surgeries.

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.
