Prescriptions – Collection and Delivery Service
1. NHS prescriptions
NHS prescription charges are paid by patients for medication prescribed for them by a National Health Service medical practitioner.
The basic NHS prescription charge in England is £7.40p. However, many people are exempt from paying this fee, and these people include, children under 16, pregnant women, people over 60, young people in full-time education, people in receipt of certain benefits such as Income Support or Jobseekers’ Allowance and people suffering from specific conditions, such as certain types of physical disability, diabetes, or epilepsy, for which they hold a valid exemption certificate.
Bring your prescription into Moin’s Chemist today and we will make sure we provide you with whatever your need, along with excellent service

A private prescription is a prescription that is issued by a doctor normally following a private consultation. With a private prescription the patient needs to pay for the actual costs of the drugs prescribed and not just the standard NHS fee and Moin’s Chemist are happy to dispense your private prescriptions. The price will depend on the cost of your medication and the quantity you’ve been prescribed, but our pharmacy team will be happy to calculate the cost for you – just ask.

A Medicine Use Review (MUR) is a meeting between you and your pharmacist to discuss how you are getting on with your medicine, and as it is funded by the NHS you will not need to pay for it.
The purpose of the meeting is to:
- Help you understand the medicine you are taking
- Help with any issues you may have regarding your medication
- Improve the effectiveness of your medication
If you are regularly taking more than one prescription medicine, or you are taking medication for a long term illness (asthma, arthritis, diabetes etc) then you are recommended to book a MUR with your pharmacist.
Even if you are not part of the selected group then you can ask your pharmacist anytime for advice anytime.
