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.

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.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see clinician at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.

If you fail to attend for a medication review, this could result in your next prescription being given at a reduced quantity.

Why Your Doctor May Not Prescribe Your Usual Medicines

NHS Sheffield Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is responsible for buying health services on behalf of people in Sheffield, including medicines provided on prescription.

We need to make sure we get the best value for NHS resources and that patients get the most effective care and treatment.

In Sheffield, we currently spend over £3 million a year on medicines that are widely available to buy over-the-counter without a prescription and a further £300,000 on expensive branded medicines where a non-branded product would have been available at a much lower cost.

Please see the following leaflet and poster for more information.
