Prescriptions

Repeat Prescriptions

We have a computerised repeat prescription service. Repeat prescriptions are normally for patients with long-term conditions who receive regular treatment. Your doctor will decide who can have a repeat prescription.

You can request a repeat prescription by calling the Medicines Order Line number 01246 588860 or the NHSApp.

Alternatively you may register for our online services and order via the link at the top of this page.

We do not take repeat prescription requests over the telephone – this is for accuracy reasons.

Please allow at least 48 hours before collection at the pharmacy (of your choice).

Medication Reviews

From time to time we will ask you to see your doctor or General Practice Pharmacist to review your medication. This is usually an annual medication review however, depending on the number of items on your repeat script, you may be called 6 monthly. We do this to monitor your illness and medication.

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.

  • 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.

The NHS App

Wingerworth Medical Centre would like to invite you to use the NHS App

The new, simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet.

You can now use the NHS App to submit an eConsult. By using the App your personal information will be automatically filled in, so you don’t need to do this for each eConsult.
