We no longer accept prescription requests from pharmacists for our patients. This is part of a nationwide policy to reduce medicine wastage.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions
Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).
The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.
Prescription (per item): £8.80
12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
3-month PPC: £29.10
