Repeat Prescriptions

Repeat prescriptions must be requested in writing from the surgery and require two full working days' notice. Please use the printed computerised request slip whenever possible. E mail requests can be sent to vta@nhs.net  

Prescriptions may be collected in person from reception, posted (if an SAE is enclosed) or forwarded to a local pharmacy by prior arrangement. Electronic prescribing is also available (see below). Please ask at reception for details of how to register.

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.

NHS charges

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

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 pre payment certificate.
