Please note: We are unable to take requests for repeat prescriptions by telephone. 

We will issue 28 day supply of your medication as per SNEEICB guidelines. (28-day prescribing had been introduced to help tackle medicines waste)

Any medication requests received after 3pm on a Friday will unfortunately not be actioned until the next working day.

Local Pharmacies

If you wish, we can send your prescription to any of the following pharmacies in Haverhill:

  • Boots 
  • David Holland 
  • Well Pharmacy 
  • Tesco Pharmacy
  • Haverhill Pharmacy in the Surgery building (not affiliated to the Practice)

Medication Reviews

Regular medications will require a regular review with a doctor, and there will be a reminder on your prescription when it is due. 

The dispensary staff will also regularly review your medication. Please do your best to respond when you receive a request to come in for a medication review. It may likely mean you need a blood test or blood pressure check before further medication is issued.

Failure to attend for medication reviews or annual chronic disease reviews or bloods tests could mean that you medication is reduced or stopped.

Prescription Fees

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 Choices

NHS Charges

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.
