Repeat Prescriptions

Requests for repeat medication can be made by post, (please enclose a stamped addressed envelope),by calling in to reception or online through the My GP app or patient access. Please ensure you tick the right hand side of the script with what medication you are requesting. 

We cannot take prescription orders over the telephone.

Please give 48 hours notice.

My GP App

My GP app, what is it?

The new myGP app was developed to make access to healthcare easier and faster for patients. Once downloaded, simply log-in with your date of birth and mobile number and add the people you care for, allowing you to book and cancel appointments, order prescriptions and access your medical record. It’s really that easy! For more information, please visit: ilovemygp.com.

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): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

If you 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.
