We are now pleased to say we have been certified as a Dementia Friendly GP Practice. This is thanks to our Healthcare assistant, Beverly Batty's hard work. Please see the news page for more information.
Monday and Friday early morning and Saturday morning surgeries are now available to book online. These appointments should be used by patients who are unable to make it during normal working hours.
Prescription orders CANNOT be taken over the phone, apart from contraceptive requests. If you call to order your medication, you will be told to come down to order it. Patients on long-term medication can order repeat prescriptions in the following ways:
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
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.
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
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
