Emergency Prescriptions

It is the patient’s responsibility to request repeat prescriptions in time. Please do not allow yourself to run out of your medications. If you do run out of your medication, you can request an emergency prescriptionin person, at reception. You will be asked to complete an Emergency Prescription Request which will then be passed to a clinician. Please telephone the surgery after 5pm to see if your prescription is ready. The Practice will endeavour to fulfill your request on the day, however this is not guaranteed.

PLEASE NOTE – an emergency prescription will only cover for 3 days’ medication – you will still need to request your medication routinely

HRT Pre-Payment Certificate

From the 1 April, the Government is launching the HRT Pre-Payment Certificate (PPC) to reduce prescription costs for women receiving Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

The HRT PPC will be available to buy in one single payment online at, or in-person at some pharmacies. You can call 0300 330 2089 for help and support.

Before buying an HRT PPC, you should check if:

These charges apply in England only.   In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

  • Prescription (per item): £9.65
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
