What are the NHS Prescription 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.


How do I order a repeat prescription?

Patients may request a repeat prescription by leaving a written request form at the reception desk. The prescription will be available for collection within two working days.  We do not take requests over the telephone.

If you are registered to use the online services, you can order your repeat prescription online.
