How to Request a Repeat Prescription
Repeat prescriptions are medications which your doctor would like you to continue on a regular basis.
Repeat prescriptions may be ordered in several ways:
Other requests for repeat prescriptions should be in writing or via email to [email protected] The Receptionists are not permitted to take requests for repeat prescriptions over the telephone.
Fill in a prescription request form or underline the items needed on the tear-off side of your prescription and drop it into the surgery. Please do not order any medications you do not need.
If a stamped addressed envelope is supplied, your prescription can be returned via Royal Mail. Find our postal address.

Prescription charges are as follows:
- Prescription (per item): £9.35
- 3-month PPC: £30.25
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
If you pay for prescription items frequently, you may find it cheaper to buy a prepayment certificate. You can do this by visiting here.
A private prescription can only be issued if the medication is not available on the NHS; the prescription is not paid for by the NHS and the cost is paid for by the patient. It is charged by the cost of the medicine and the pharmacists charge for supplying it.
Please note a prescription is a legal document which the doctor who has signed it is responsible. Doctors who are seen privately cannot issue NHS prescriptions.
Your GP is unable to convert a private prescription into an NHS prescription.
