The ways to order your repeat prescription are:
Your prescription will be ready to collect two working days after we receive your request.
No verbal requests will be accepted at the reception desk.
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.
Prescription costs as of April 1 2014
PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week. Find out more by visiting the NHS Choices - Help with Health Costs site.
