On the tax return,there's a section that requires me to fill in any medical contributions made by myself that are not reflected on my IRP5/IT(a) however the total contributions are reflected on my IRP5 so am I supposed to deduct the employer's contributions from the total contributions to calculate contributions made solely by myself or is is another amount they're referring to?

If the total contributions per your Medical Aid certificate is already reflected on your IRP5, then you would put nil in this field (4040). This section is only for any medical aid contributions which are not related to your employment - i.e. paid from your own cash balance in your bank account.
