Important Information

All patients on repeat medication will be given monthly prescriptions. This is in accordance with Clinical Commissioning Group guidelines. Women taking the contraceptive pill or hormone replacement therapy will need to see a doctor at least yearly and will be given prescriptions for three months at a time.

Our repeat medications are reviewed at regular intervals by the Clinical Commissioning Group Pharmacy team to keep up to date with current prescribing recommendations. We will endeavour to inform you of any changes that are being made.

Not all medication can be prescribed by your doctor, therefore sometimes you may be asked to get certain medications from your hospital consultant.

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): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

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.

  • Telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030
  • General Public - Buy or Renew a PPC On-line
