PLEASE NOTE, IF YOU HAVE AN URGENT NEED TO SEE A GP YOU CAN NOW BE OFFERED A FACE TO FACE APPOINTMENT WITH A GP. WE ARE STILL OFFERING TELEPHONE APPOINTMENTS FOR THE MORE GENERAL HEALTH PROBLEMS AS THEY ARE IDEALLY SUITED TO A PHONE CALL AND WILL SAVE YOU COMING INTO THE SURGERY.  IF YOU NEED TO BE SEEN HOWEVER, IT IS SAFE TO COME INTO THE SURGERY, ASSUMING YOU DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE ANY COVID SYMPTOMS OF A PERSISTENT DRY COUGH OR A HIGH TEMPERATURE.  OUR SURGERY REMAINS A "COLD HUB" AND WE ARE NOT SEEING ANYONE HERE WITH COVID SYMPTOMS SO PLEASE DO NOT DELAY TREATMENT FOR ANY URGENT MEDICAL NEEDS. 

We want to hear about your experiences of local healthcare services. What works well? What could be improved? What ideas do you have? Click here to give us your feedback

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): £7.65
  • 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
