Exemption arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges for NHS prescriptions, dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs.
Certain medical conditions (eg. diabetes, pregnancy) also entitle selected patients to be exempt from paying. The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which is set by the Government for all those who are not exempt.
Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need long term medication. Ask at our reception if you require a PPC application form or use the link above.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, prescriptions are free of charge.
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.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
You can request your repeat medication by indicating the items you require on the tear-off slip of your prescription, and posting it to us or handing it in at the practice reception.
If you enclose a stamped self addressed envelope we will happily post your prescription to you.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription via this website.
Please allow 2 full working days before the prescription is needed. If you use any of the chemist's collection and delivery services please allow 4 working days.
All patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
