The dispensary at Hatfield Peverel is open Monday to Friday from 8.30am - 6.30pm
We are only allowed to dispense medicine to those patients who live more than one mile from a chemist.
Repeat prescriptions will be issued for patients on long term treatment and regular medicine reviews are undertaken.
Requests for repeat prescriptions should be left in one of the 'repeat prescription boxes' provided.
Please use the repeat slip wherever possible and allow three complete working days before collection. It is the patients/carers responsibility to make sure the request is handed in before current medication is due to run out to ensure there is enough medication to cover this period.
Alternatively you may order by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure you include name, date of birth and state exactly which items you require, failure to do so may lead to a delay in processing your prescription.

If you are unable to use the above preferred methods, then the dispenser at Hatfield Peverel will answer the telephone daily between 09.00am and 10.00am and from 3pm and 4pm

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
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £8.80
- 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.
