Order your repeat prescription via Online Consult

Repeat Prescriptions

You can order your prescription in the following ways:

  • In person - Please use the post box in the doorway and not the reception, this will reduce the number of people entering the reception area and keep time on site to a minimum.
  • By post - send it to us with a stamped addressed envelope if you want us to post it back to you.
  • Online - follow either of the two links at the top of this page to be redirected.
  • Chemist - your local chemist may offer a collection and delivery service.

Medication Requests are not accepted over the telephone.

Housebound patients can contact their local pharmacy many of which will make arrangements to collect and deliver prescriptions to the patient’s residence.

If you order your prescriptions on-line and would like a pharmacy to collect please notify the pharmacy that you would like them to collect your prescription and dispense the medication.

How long will your prescription take?

Please allow two full working days (48 Hours) for routine prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

Medication that requires re-authorisation will take longer due to the review process, please allow at least 72 hours. 

Chasing Up Your Medication

If you have alowed the above timeframe please contact your Pharmacist first as often medication has been sent but not downloaded by the Pharmacy. If you use the NHS App this will tell you if you medication has has been approved. 


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): £9.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25

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.
