The Government has announced an increase to the NHS prescription charge of 20 pence, to £8.80 per prescription item. This change will come into effect from 1st April 2018.
We are able to dispense to approximately 50% of our patients - those who live more than a mile from a pharmacy (this is an NHS regulation).
If you are on long-term medication you will receive a "repeat prescription" form on the side of your printed prescription.
To order further drugs tick the box next to the name of the drug required on the form and post or drop the form into the surgery (through the letterbox when the surgery is closed).
A few local pharmacies have made arrangements with the surgery to receive prescriptions from us if you as a patient choose to use this service. Please speak to a dispenser regarding your needs.
If you enclose a stamped addressed envelope we will gladly post the prescription to you.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse at least once a year to review their medications. When you receive a notice appearing on your prescription counterfoil stating “please see the doctor before next repeat can be issued” please arrange for a routine appointment allowing plenty of time before your supply runs out.

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.
Here is the new charges for NHS prescriptions from 1st April 2023. There is now an HRT Pre payment certificate introduced.
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a pre payment certificate.
