New Patients

Non-urgent advice: Notice

Please note – The practice will need proof of medication (computer printout). If you are unable to provide this, we will need to contact your previous GP for details. It would be appreciated if you could give us this information to avoid any delay. This has been implemented to ensure safe prescribing for all our patients as errors can occur if verbal information is given to our practice.

 Please allow 48 hours for repeat prescriptions (not including weekends and bank holidays).

All repeat prescriptions are recorded on and issued from our practice computer and will have a counterfoil attached. This details all your repeat medication. Please tick items required on this counterfoil when ordering. This will help to minimize any errors that may occur. A record of these requests is kept for 1 month for audit purposes.

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): £9.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25

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.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.

NHS Hormone Replacement Therapy Prescription Prepayment Certificate (HRT PPC)

If you pay for NHS prescribed HRT medicine 3 or more times in 12 months, an HRT PPC could save you money.

Each item on an NHS prescription usually costs £9.65. You can buy an HRT PPC for a one-off payment of £19.30 (the cost of two single items).

The HRT PPC covers an unlimited number of certain HRT medicines for 12 months, regardless of why they are prescribed.

The HRT PPC does not cover all HRT medicines. Check if it covers your HRT medicine.

If your HRT medicine is not covered, or you also get prescriptions for items other than HRT medicine, you may save more with a 3 or 12 month PPC that covers all NHS prescriptions.

Before buying an HRT PPC, check if you’re entitled to free NHS prescriptions and other help with health costs using our eligibility checker.
