Remember to tick all the items you require. There may be some occasions when your request for repeat medication may be declined. This could be that you are requesting your prescription before it is due. Unfortunately we are unable to inform you of this occurrence.

It would assist us if you could collect your prescription after 4pm – thank you.

Local chemists operate collection and delivery services, further details can be obtained from individual chemists.

It is a driver’s responsibility to decide whether they consider their driving is, or they believe might be, impaired on any given occasion when taking prescribed medication. For more information please see your doctor or pharmacist.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

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.

NHS charges

  • 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.
