Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will explain the repeat prescription system upon beginning regular treatment.

You can order a repeat prescription via:

  • this website using SystmOnline via the link at the top of this page
  • dropping the repeat reorder form (with the required medications ticked) into the surgery
  • by post
  • If you are a vunerable patient, via a pharmacy service (please ask your pharmacist)
  • Please note repeat medication can not be ordered over the phone

Please allow at least 48 hours after submitting your request before collecting your prescription from the surgery.

Your doctor will review all repeat prescriptions regularly.

Patients with some chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and asthma will be seen regularly for monitoring of their condition.

Please tell us of any changes to your repeat prescription list made at the hospital or if you stop any medication by yourself.

Do not stockpile unwanted drugs at home – return them to your chemist.

If you think you may need a new prescription for medicine, please make an appointment with the doctor.

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): £9.35
  • 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.
