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.

NHS charges

These charges apply in England only from 01 April 2021. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.35
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.00
  • 3-month PPC: £30.25

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 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

Repeat Prescriptions 

If you require a repeat prescription there are a number of ways you can request this:

  • By using our online repeat prescription request service (to register complete the form below)
  • Post your repeat slip
  • Drop your repeat slip into the surgery
  • Via Lynton Chemist (contact them for further information)

When issuing repeat medications we must have all the details i.e. name of the drug and the dosage (size of tablets). The receptionists are not allowed to issue any medications without these details.

Please let the reception staff know whether you would like to collect your prescription from the health centre or for it to be sent to Lynton Chemist.  

The doctor will need to see you at intervals to review your medical condition. We will contact you when this is due.

Non-urgent advice: Notice

Please allow two full working days to allow for your prescription to be written and checked and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account.

* Please note that as from 1st April 2015 we can no longer take telephone prescription requests*
