Shingles

If your date of birth is between 2/9/1935 - 31/8/1937 and 2/9/1942 - 1/9/1945 then please call the surgery to book in for shingles vaccination

Extra Appointments

NHS England has released a small amount of money to support the winter pressures in general practice locally. This will provide on, on average, about 24 extra appointments on Mondays until the end of February (About a 3% increase during this period). These have to be book on the day appointments and will be released by reception in line with the other book on the day appointments.

Prescriptions Charges and Exemptions

The NHS prescription charge is a flat-rate, per item 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 savings for those people who are not exempt and need extensive medication.

Extensive exemption arrangements protect those with certain conditions (cancer, thyroid problems, diabetes needing medication etc)  and those likely to have difficulty in paying charges.

On the rare occasion that a private prescription is required please be aware that both doctor and pharmacist may charge a fee for processing. This would be discussed with you at the time of issue.


NHS charges

From 1 April 2011, the charges are:

  • Prescription (per item): £8.40
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. Telephone advice and order line 0845 850 0030
