Repeat Prescriptions

Order your repeat prescription by clicking the link at the top of this page via SystemOne Online. You will need a log in for this, please contact reception to request access. 

Presciptions will need to be sent electronically to your nominated pharmacy (pharmacy of your choice) for collection. If you do not have a nominated pharmacy, please phone us to select one.

Repeat prescriptions will not be issued unless you have a repeat prescription slip from this practice.

Requests cannot be taken over the telephone.

You must allow up to 48 hours before your prescription is ready, however it can be collected on the same day from your nominated pharmacy.  If completed over the weekend, this will not be ready for collection until the Tuesday afternoon, after the weekend and a Wednesday after a bank holiday Monday.

Under special circumstances only we will post your prescription to you please include a stamped addressed envelope with your repeat prescription slip.

If you have any queries about nominated pharmacies or how presciptions work, please read further.

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.
