Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication will require repeat prescriptions. Each time a repeat prescription is written, a new request slip is produced for you to make your next request for regular medication.

To send a request you can: 

  • Post in the Request: please use your normal repeat slip and send to the surgery. You need to enclose SAE if you wish to have it posted back.
  • Come To The Surgery: Once the slip has been filled in you can come into the surgery reception and hand it in or post it in the repeat prescription box.
  • Online: You can order your repeat prescriptions via the link at the top of this page
  • NHS App: You can use the NHS App to reorder your prescriptions. You can find further details about the App here:

     https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/nhs-app/

    We are sorry but we cannot accept telephone prescription requests.

How do I use the online service?

If you don't have a login username/password yet, all you need to do is drop in to one of our branches with 2 forms of ID, one containing a photograph of yourself and one containing proof of your home address. Our receptionists will give you a form to fill in and once completed, your login details will then be posted to you, so that you can re-order repeat prescriptions online.

Collections

 

Once the request has been received, you must currently allow 7 working days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays) before you collect your prescription.  We hope to get back to our usual 3 working day standard as soon as we can. 

Please read the repeat slip carefully. We may sometimes put special information on it for you. 

We operate a dispensing service for patients registered at Bradninch, Uffculme and Sampford Peverell.

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): £9.35
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
  • 3-month PPC: £30.25

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.

  • Telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030
  • General Public - Buy or Renew a PPC On-line

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website.
