PLEASE WELCOME OUR NEW PARTNER TO THE SURGERY, DR PATEL WHO WILL BE JOINING US FROM THE 3RD APRIL 2018. WE WOULD ALSO LIKE TO WELCOME DR TOMLIN (GP) AND PAUL BEVERIDGE (PARAMEDIC PRACTITIONER) TO OUR PERMANENT TEAM. DR HALEM IS NOW ABLE TO SEE MORE PATIENTS SO PLEASE BOOK WITH HIM IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS. WE TAKE BOOKINGS 2 WEEKS IN ADVANCE PLUS ON THE DAY BOOKINGS.

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.

We are glad to announce that after the recent CQC inspection in February 2018 we are no longer in special measures.  They are pleased with the works and results achieved in just 4 months after their first visit.  

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
