Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

Regular repeat prescriptions are printed on our computer and the sideslip provides a list of your medicines and the date by which these should be reviewed by you and a doctor or nurse at the Health Centre. 

Please give the sideslip to the Health Centre, Moreton Pharmacy, branch surgeries, or placing in our mail box at the front door. 

Alternatively you may order a repeat prescription online using our secure system via the link at the top of this page.

Please allow 3 workings days for the Health Centre to prepare your prescription and the chemist to have your medicines available. 

Please note: We do not take requests by telephone or email for repeat prescriptions. 

Dispensing

The Health Centre routinely delivers prescriptions to the pharmacy in Moretonhampstead to be dispensed. If you do not want to use this service, you can ask to pick up the paper prescription from the health centre to take to a pharmacy of your choice. Alternatively, if you wish to have the prescription posted to your home or a nominated pharmacy, we can do so if you provide the health centre with a supply of stamped addressed envelopes.

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.
