Flu Vaccination appointments are now available to book in surgery. Alternatively we have set up a Saturday Clinic on the 7th October. Just walk in between 9 am and 12 noon if you are eligible for the annual vaccination.
The Surgery will be closed for training on the afternoon of Thursday 19th October. This training for clinical and administrative staff takes place four times a year and is arranged by our Clinical Commissioning Group. We are covered by the GP Out of Hours Service 1 to 6 pm in case of emergencies. We will reopen as normal the following morning. Sorry for any inconvenience.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
- Prescription (per item): £8.60
- 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.
