Goodbye Dr Burke!! 

At the end of July Dr Helen Burke will sadly be leaving us and taking up a new post in London, Helen will be missed by all the team and we all wish her well for the future. We are delighted to let you know that Dr George Guest will be joining us as a salaried GP from the 1st of August. 

Watch out in both surgeries for our campaign to get patients registered for online services.

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 – £9.00 per item
  • 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
