Noticeboard

2018 IS HERE. THERE ARE STILL SOME FLU VACCINES AVAILABLE. PLEASE BOOK APPOINTMENTS WITH THE NURSE OR ASK THE DOCTOR AT YOUR CONSULTATION TO GIVE ONE IF YOU NEED IT. 

The Surgery is having further refurbishment works on the first floor. Plus we hope to commence building a single-storey side extension to provide 2 further consulting rooms for our elderly and disabled patients. We thank you for your patience during these works and aim to minimise any disruptions.

Thank you for cooperating with the drug switches as advised by the MEDICINE MANAGEMENT TEAM AT THE CCG. 

Old Road West Surgery is working towards the next Care Quality Commission Inspection. The inspection report highlighted areas where the surgery was delivering a good service, which reflects the commitment of all practice staff to high quality patient care, but also identifies areas that we need to improve.

We are committed to making all necessary improvements for all of our patients and the practice is confident that the outcome of any future CQC inspection will reflect this.

Patients that may have specific feedback or questions regarding our service are encouraged to write directly to the practice via letter or email so that we can respond to each enquiry we receive.

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
