(*)A prepaid certificate is a way you can limit your prescription costs and may be worthwhile when you are likely to need a large number of prescriptions. A certificate costs £30.25 for three months or 104.00 for 12 months. Application forms (FP95)  are available from the Dispensary. Government Regulations restrict our dispensing to patients living in rural areas only. We do though have a system in place where if you mark your prescription card (for repeat prescriptions) you may collect your items from any of the Romsey Pharmacists.

You can help drug wastage by simply doing the following :

  • Please do not hoard medicines and avoid wastage wherever possible
  • Please only ask for repeat prescriptions when required
  • Please only ask for those items to be used and bring to the doctor or dispenser's attention any medications no longer required
