Thank you. Your choice has been saved. You can change your preferences at any time.
If you are on regular medication, your doctor will probably issue a computerised repeat prescription form and explain how it works. Repeats can be ordered as follows.
Always allow 2 full working days before collecting your prescription. Don’t leave your request until you’ve run out.
We can now send your prescription electronically to the pharmacy so please make sure you have told us the pharmacy of your choice. All you then have to do is allow an extra day and collect your medication from them. This saves us all time.
If you need more than 13 prescribed medicines in a year, you will save money with this.
A single prescription is £8.40, a 3 month prepayment is £29.10 and a 12 month prepayment is £104.
Click on Prescription Prepayment Application and follow the application process at the bottom of the page.
Your GP, nurse or pharmacist will not generally give you a prescription for over the counter medicines for a range of minor health concerns, even if you qualify for free prescriptions.
Instead, over the counter medicines are available to buy in a pharmacy or supermarket in your local community. The team of health professionals at your local pharmacy can offer help and clinical advice to manage minor health concerns and if your symptoms suggest it’s more serious, they’ll ensure you get the care you need. Please help the NHS to use resources sensibly.
