Repeat Prescriptions

  • To order a repeat prescription please use the repeat slip provided with your medication or let us have a written request. Please tick those items that you require.
  • You can also sign up for Patient Access to order repeat medication via the link at the top of this page - please speak to reception about signing up for this service.
  • Alternatively you can now order your repeat prescription via email: hillview.scripts1@nhs.net

Prescriptions will be processed within 48 hours. Always ensure that your repeat request is with us in good time. 

Please note: If we do not have your repeat request by 12:30 it is not dealt with until the following day. 

Local Pharmacies

We can send your prescription to the local chemist for collection or post it to you if you give us a stamped address envelope. The local Pharmacist also operates a ‘home delivery’ service which there may be a charge for.

If you have arranged for home delivery please discuss the timescale with the chemist.

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.
