Accessing Online Prescription ordering

Patients on repeat medication are issued with a list of these items on collection of their prescription from their chemist.

Once ordered, please allow 48 hours before collecting your prescription from your nominated chemist. This excludes weekends and bank holidays

If a prescription is required early due to holidays, please make this clear by informing the prescription clerk, adding it to the email or in the ‘Other Details’ box when ordering online. If no details are entered your order will be queried, and your prescription will be delayed.

Your doctor will ask to see or speak to you periodically to review your repeat medication.

For your convenience a list of local chemists and their telephone numbers can be found towards the bottom of this page.

How to order Repeat Prescriptions

There are several ways you can order repeat medication –

  1. The telephone prescription line available Monday to Friday 9am to 12pm for prescription orders and queries. Telephone 01772 423555 and press the prescription option. Please note – the phone line is always busy 9am on a Monday morning.
  2. Online – Using the NHS App
    Information is available on the Patient Online Services page. You must register with the service before being able to order a repeat prescription.
  3. Email. Email the surgery  – please add PRESCRIPTION ORDER in the subject box – thank you.

Non-urgent advice: Please note

By default, your prescription will be sent to your nominated chemist electronically (EPS).

You can still collect a prescription from reception if you need to find a pharmacy to source a medication with supply issues, but you will need to let us know of this when you place your prescription order.

If you use a delivery service through a chemist, you should inform the chemist and ourselves each time you order; Worden Medical Centre is happy to facilitate, but is not responsible for the provision of this service.

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.
NHS charges

From April 2023, the charges are:
Prescription (per item): £9.65
12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
3-month PPC: £31.25
12-month Hormone Replacement Therapy prepayment certificate (HRT PPC): £19.30

If you will need 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 – see below ‘How much you can save‘.  The charge for a single prescription item is £9.65, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £31.25 and a 12 month PPC £111.60. The 12 month HRT PPC is £19.30 and is the same price as two prescription charges, meaning if need more than 2 prescriptions of HRT in 12 months, you can save money by purchasing a HRT PPC.
