Coronavirus Update  

In order to maintain the integrity of the service we offer to the community, it has been necessary to make several urgent operational changes.  All patients that have an existing appointment need to be screened for symptoms of Coronavirus by telephone and/or text before they can be seen. 

Patients with suspected Coronavirus should not come to the surgery; they will be directed to the NHS 111online checker for advice.   https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19     

Consultations will be by telephone wherever possible as we must avoid any infectious patients entering the building to protect the health of our most vulnerable patients. 

Thank you for your kind thoughts and understanding at this challenging time.

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
