Noticeboard

Sadly Dr Patel has had to leave the surgery due to relocation. We wish him well for the future. We have a new doctor starting next week, Dr Soumyo Gorai.

WE HAVE OUR USUAL WALK IN FLU VACCINATION CLINIC ON SATURDAY 27TH OCTOBER BETWEEN 8-12:30. ALL THOSE WHO ARE ELIGIBLE ARE WELCOME AND WE WOULD BE GRATEFUL IF YOU COULD LET ANY FAMILY MEMBERS KNOW. WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEE YOU THEN.

WE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE FLU CLINICS AT THE SURGERY SO PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE NURSES.

From September the surgery will be closed for lunchtime between 12:30 and 13:30 for staff training. The phone lines will be open for emergency calls only during this time with normal service resuming at 13:30.

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): £8.05
  • 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
