Dispensary

Claire Oliver is the Lead Dispenser at the Practice and will be happy to help if you have any queries.

The practice can dispense prescriptions for patients living more than 1.6 kilometres from a Pharmacy between the hours of 08:30 and 18:30 Monday to Friday.

Should you require repeat medication urgently when the surgery is closed, or have a query regarding your medication, please call 111 and you will automatically be transferred to the 111 service who will assist you.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If a patient doesn't have a medication review you may only receive a small supply of your prescription and will be asked to book an appointment for a review before you request any further medication.

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.
