INFORMATION FOR PATIENTS REGARDING CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)

We are commited to keeping our most vulnerable patients and staff as safe as possible, therefore we have suspended all routine face-to-face GP appointment bookings. Patients who had an appointment booked will be telephoned by a GP at the time of the original appointment. If you have not spoken to a doctor please do not attend the surgery.

In line with the latest advice, if you have a high temperature or new, continuous cough you should self-isolate for a period of 7 days. There is no need to contact either the surgery or NHS111.

For the latest information regarding COVID-19 please visit NHS111Online

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

Extensive exemption and remission arrangements protect those likely to have difficulty in paying charges (NHS prescription and dental charges, optical and hospital travel costs).

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate amount which successive Governments have thought it reasonable to charge for those who can afford to pay for their medicines. Prescription prepayment certificates (PPCs) offer real savings for people who need extensive medication.


NHS charges

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

  • Prescription (per item): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

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.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
