NHS Hormone Replacement Therapy Prescription Prepayment Certificate (HRT PPC)
Around 400,000 women across England will get better access to menopause support - saving hundreds of pounds and making treatment more accessible.
If you are on long-term medication you can get a repeat prescription by ordering online (via the link at the top of this page) or by bringing in your printed list of drugs, marked with the items that you require, or by posting it to us.
Please order online, post, or call in, giving us a clear 3 workings days notice.
If you have not used Patient Access online services before, please click here for information about the service and how to register.
Please note: We do not accept prescription requests via the telephone.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
To get your prescription sent to your chosen pharmacy you will have to ask reception to sign up.
For more information please click here.
You may be asked to see a doctor or our Clinical Pharmacist before a repeat prescription is issued.
A review date on your prescription means that your doctor will not issue another unless they have seen you or spoken to you on the phone before that date.
Please always check your review date and allow yourself enough time.
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.uk
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £9.65
- 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £111.60
- 3-month PPC: £31.25
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.
