These are only given with the doctors agreement. If you have a regular repeat prescription you will be given a computer slip.
For a repeat prescription post or hand your slip in at the surgery or make arrangements with your local pharmacy.
If you ‘hand’ your slip in allow at least two working days. Three working days for ‘postal’ requests.
Alternatively, you can order your repeat prescription directly through this site. Click on the link above and complete the simple registration form. Ask a receptionist for details (Photo ID is required) .
Prescriptions can be collected personally by an adult or they will be posted back to you with the slip if you provide a stamped addressed envelope.
Repeat dispensing also available. You will be asked to see the doctor for a check up at regular intervals.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
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.
