There is a friendy and convenient pharmacy in the entrance to Shepley Health Centre. Because it suits most people, most prescriptions generated by the surgery are generally passed to the pharmacy. The pharmacy then dispense the prescribed items, so that they are ready when the patient or their representative calls later.
If it suits you better, you can take any prescription to any pharmacy in the country.
For patients not entitled to free NHS Prescriptions, the current cost of an NHS prescription (payable to the pharmacy) is £9 per item.
Pre-payment certificates are available at a cost of £29.10 for 3 months or £104 for 12 months.

Electronic Prescription Service
You can set up with any pharmacy, or with the surgery, a nominated pharmacy. When you do this, any prescriptions we generate for you can be sent electronically straight to the pharmacy. This can be very convenient if you nominate a pharmacy close to where you live or work. Even if your nominated pharmacy is not the one in Shepley Health Centre, you can still take prescriptions generated in a consultation to Shepley Pharmacy if you so wish.
It is even possible to temporarily nominate a pharmacy away from home. One advantage of this is that if you go to visit a different part of the UK and find you need a prescription, then it can be sent electronically to the pharmacy near where you are staying.
