This system can only be used for medication which your GP has prescribed and arranged repeat ordering for. You cannot request medication for a new problem.

Place your order any time - your prescription will be available for collection within 2 working days.

Urgent Prescriptions

Should you need to order an urgent prescription, these requests need to be in before 10:30. This then gives us time to process and the prescription will be ready at 17:30 on that day.  Please do not abuse this service and order your repeat prescriptions in a timely manner, with 48 hours notice.

Controlled Drugs

The practice policy for collection of a controlled drug is that all prescriptions have to be signed for either by the patient who is required to provide photographic identification (preferably a passport or driving licence on collection.

If the patient is unable to collect a controlled drug and wishes to nominate a representative, the representative should present with a signed letter from the patient and a photographic form of identification, preferably a passport or driving licence.

Controlled drugs will only be given out under these circumstances.

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): £9.35
