  • Repeat Prescriptions

    If you would like to order your repeat prescription online, you must be registered for Systmonline. Please click here to request access to our online services.

    Repeat prescriptions can be re-ordered in a number of ways:

    • ONLINE - The easiest way for you to request a repeat prescription is to register with 'Systmonline'  This enables you to order repeat prescriptions , as well as book or cancel appointments yourself.
    • In person - hand your repeat slip in at reception or post it in the prescription box in the entrance at the surgery. You can also fill in a repeat prescription request form at the front desk.
    • By post – send the repeat prescription request to us, with a stamped addressed envelope and we'll happily send it back to you.

    Please allow two working days for repeat prescription requests to be processed.

    If you are on a regular medication your doctor may mark this item as a ‘repeat prescription.’ This means that you can obtain a further prescription without having to see a doctor.

    Please be aware that if you are requesting your medication too early or if the doctor thinks that you need a review, we will not be able to issue a prescription.

    If you require your prescription early due to a holiday for example, please provide a reason with your early request.

  • Prescription charges and exceptions

    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. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

    • Prescription (per item): £9.00
    • 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 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

  • Prescription prepayment certificates

    If you need more than 13 prescribed medicines in a year, you will save money with this.

    A single prescription is £9:00, a 3 month prepayment is £29.10 and a 12 month prepayment is £104.
