We regret we are no longer able to accept telephone requests for prescriptions.

We are not a dispensing practice. However you can arrange for your prescriptions to be collected from Lloyds Pharmacy, Boots, or Clayfields (Addingham) ONLY IF you have an existing arrangement with one of them. Otherwise you should collect your prescription from the surgery.

Important Notice Regarding the Return of Medicines

All unused or unwanted medicines must be returned to the pharmacy and not to the doctors' surgery.

Prescription 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.

  • Prescription (per item): £8.50
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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.
