The easiest way to order your repeat prescription is by using the NHS App
If you’re unable to use the App please contact the surgery or speak to your pharmacy who can request the medication on your behalf.
You can also have your prescriptions sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy; ask reception to set this up for you.
A Doctor will still need to see you at least once a year to review your medication, this review date will be in your birthday month.

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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.35
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
- 3-month PPC: £30.25
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.
