HRT Pre-Payment Certificate

From the 1 April, the Government is launching the HRT Pre-Payment Certificate (PPC) to reduce prescription costs for women receiving Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT).

The HRT PPC will be available to buy in one single payment online at, or in-person at some pharmacies. You can call 0300 330 2089 for help and support.

Before buying an HRT PPC, you should check if:

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to have a telephone appointment with the Practice Pharmacists once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip of when this is due.  In some cases, this review may also be done by a doctor or

nurse practitioner.  If a review is not already booked when this date is reached, we will contact you either by phone or text message with a link to book an appointment.  It is important you ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to ensure the safe and effective prescribing of your repeat medicines and to avoid any unnecessary delays or reduced quantities on further prescriptions. 

In all cases patients should allow two full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays.

Prescription charges

These charges apply in England only and are updated every April.  In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge. 

  • Prescription (per item): £9.65
  • 3-month PPC: £31.25
  • 12-month PPC: £111.60

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.

What to do with old medicines

Take it to the pharmacy you got it from for them to dispose of them safely or bring full sharps boxes into the surgery for disposal.  Do not put medications in your household bin or flush it down the toilet. 

Please see the following poster on the importance of proper disposal of inhalers to protect the environment.
