Noticeboard

When you attend for your next appointment why not use our new checking in service? As you walk into the waiting room you will see the new automatic check-in ahead of you, to the left. Just touch the screen and follow the instructions. To use it, all you need to know is your date of birth! It really is that simple!

PLEASE NOTE: GP appointments are 10 minutes in duration.

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): £7.65
  • 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
