Repeat Prescriptions

The practice operates a system that allows you to obtain a prescription for regular medication without seeing a Doctor or a Nurse. NB. Prescriptions will not be issued if a medication review is due.

A Repeat Prescription will normally be available for collection after 4.30pm two working days later. You may contact the North Hyde chemists to collect the prescription on your behalf. The following options are available for patients to order a Repeat Prescription:

  • By Hand: Hand a Repeat Prescription Form (The right hand side of your last prescription) into the Surgery or complete a prescription request form
  • Post: Send us a Repeat Prescription Form (The right hand side of your last prescription)
  • On-line: You can request a repeat prescription by using the internet once you have registered for this service. Please note, if you order online after 11am, your prescription will not be processed until the next working day, and therefore ready to collect 48 hours after then. Please click here if you're already registered for Patient Access.



You may also ask your Chemist to order the same medication again on a monthly basis when you pick up your prescription.

 

NHS Charges

These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £7.65
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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. 

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website

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.
