Noticeboard

Please do not contact the practice to ask about COVID-19 vaccination. You will be contacted when you are eligible.
We have been asked by NHS England and NHS Improvement to start delivering the COVID-19 vaccination programme in December. This will be done by working together with other local GP practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines, rather doing vaccinations here at the practice. To enable everyone to get the vaccine in a safe and controlled way, priority groups have been agreed, so the vaccine can be delivered to people who need it first. We will contact you when you are eligible to receive the vaccine and provide you with information about where to go and when.  


Please don’t contact the practice to ask for a vaccine before then, you will only be booked when your group is invited.


All Covid-19 Information can be found on the support page. Please click here for more!

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 prescription costs

The current prescription charge is £9.15 per item.

A three monthly PPC is £29.65 and could save you money if you need more than three prescribed items in three months.  

A 12-month certificate is £105.90 and could save you money if you need more than 12 prescribed items in a year.

PPCs are available by 10 monthly direct debit instalment payments. The prescription prepayment certificates allow anyone to obtain all the prescriptions they need for £2 per week. 

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
