CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

To access the most up-to-date information on the Coronavirus, please click the link below:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public

This site is updated daily.  Please be aware the online booking system and the 24 hour booking service to enable patients to book their own appointments has temporarily been removed. This is to minimise any risk to patients and staff in coming into contact with coronavirus.  We apologise for the inconvenience but hope all our patients will understand the rationale behind it.  Both these facilities will of course be returned to normal as soon as it is felt safe to do so.  Please bear with our reception staff who will now be asking our patients when they call if they have travelled to China, Singapore, Thailand, Korea, Japan or other South Asian countries in the past 2 weeks or within 2 weeks of getting unwell.  This is to minimise any further risk of spreading.  Thank you very much for your understanding.

BEDWELL BUILDING WORKS

Our Bedwell Site is currently undergoing some building works to update the surgery, these started on 03.12.19 and are anticipated to be completed by the end of MARCH 2020. During this period there will be a certain amount of unavoidable disruption but we are doing our best to limit this so please bear with us.

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 and are subject to change. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.

For up to date charges please access the NHS Website below.

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 Pre Payment Card (PPC).
