Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication may obtain repeat prescriptions without having to see a doctor, until their medication review is due.

Repeats may be obtained as follows:

  • Using SystmOnline via the link at the top of this page
  • Email wmc.prescriptions@nhs.net with your request including name, date of birth, address and items requested
  • By ticking the requested repeat medication on the retained part of your prescription, & posted in the prescription box in Reception or in the post box on High Street (opposite AJs Premier Store)

Repeat prescriptions take a minimum of 48 working hours, please request your items allowing 7 days.

We follow NHS guidelines by not taking any prescription requests over the telephone.

New Patients

Please be aware that your prescription does not transfer with you, you will need to book a telephone consultation with a GP for these to be put on repeat if deemed appropriate.

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.
