Noticeboard

** PRESCRIPTION ORDERING


The practice and Pharmacies are open for prescriptions. We WILL NOT action any orders for medication unless they are due and at present the practice WILL accept telephone orders. There is no reason to stock pile medications.


**ONLINE APPOINTMENTS


Please note we have temporarily suspended our access to online booking appointments, this is so our staff can triage calls and face to face consultation requests for those who need it most and to not put others at risk**


**CHILDHOOD VACCINATIONS


We have received a number of enquiries asking for advice about infant vaccination.  Given the risk of the serious infections that the vaccines protect against, PHE are recommending that the routine primary immunisation schedule should not be delayed. Whilst parents should continue to try to obtain and administer infant paracetamol if possible, infant vaccines can and should still be given even if it is not possible to give prophylactic paracetamol.

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): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

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
