Alarm Issue - We would like to offer our sincere apologies for the problems we are experiencing with our alarm system. We are working very hard to work out why the alarms are being triggered. The company has now reduced the time the alarm will sound. We have been informed that there has been various individuals on the premises when we are closed, so please could we ask if you could all be vigilant as we have experienced some vandalism recently at the surgery also. Please let us know if you witness anything. 

 

 

 

 

Prescription 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.

 

Private and Travel Prescription charges

The surgery can provide you with both private and travel prescriptions. Most private prescriptions will be dispensed immediately from the surgery.

 

NHS charges

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

  • Prescription (per item): £8.80
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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#
