If you request for your prescription to be collected by the chemist, you must arrange this with the chemist.
We do not arrange this for you.
If you take regular medication you will be issued with a repeat prescription form. This form may be brought or posted (with a stamped addressed envelope) to the surgery.
We accept prescription requests online via the form on this website.
Please allow two full working days for prescriptions to be issued.
We are supporting Public Health England’s Antibiotic Guardian campaign urging everyone to make better use of antibiotics. Watch this video to find out more. Will you be an Antibiotic Guardian?
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.
From 1 April 2009, the charges are:
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. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £28.25 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Even if you never open them, once you leave a pharmacy your medicines cannot be recycled or used by anyone else. This means that any you return are destroyed.
Before heading to the pharmacy, take a look in your medicine cabinet to see what you actually need. You may have ordered extra of a repeat prescription last time you went and forgot.
