NHS Prescription Charge
If you would like Morton's Totalpharmacy to dispense your NHS prescription (printed on green NHS paper in England and Wales) and you are not eligible for free prescriptions, sign the back of the prescription, post it to us and pay the appropriate charge as below. We will despatch the same day we receive the prescription.
If you are not eligible for free NHS prescriptions, you can now pay the appropriate number of charges. Please see below if you are not sure if you have to pay for prescriptions or not.
The current charge (from April 1st 2015) is Ј8.20 per item. Count up the number of items on your prescription(s) and click 'add to cart' above. Pay that number of charges and post your prescription(s) to us. If you are not sure about charges then contact us.
There is no extra charge unless your dispensed medication is heavy.
