New Prescription Charges from 1st April 2019

Regulations have been laid before Parliament to increase certain National Health Service charges in England from 1 April 2019.

In the 2015 spending review, the government committed to support the Five Year Forward View with £10 billion investment in real terms by 2020 to 2021 to fund frontline NHS services. Alongside this, the government expects the NHS to deliver £22 billion of efficiency savings to secure the best value from NHS resources and primary care must play its part.

This year, therefore, there will be an increase to the prescription charge by 20 pence from £8.80 to £9 for each medicine or appliance dispensed. To ensure that those with the greatest need, and who are not already exempt from the charge, are protected the cost of the prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) has been frozen for another year. The 3-month PPC remains at £29.10 and the cost of the annual PPC will stay at £104.
Details of the revised charges for 2019 to 2020 can be found below.
Prescription charges

• Single charge: £9
• 3-month PPC (no change): £29.10
• 12-month PPC (no change): £104

Did not Attend Appointments!

Have you been struggling to book an appointment?!

During April 2019 there were 55 patients who did not attend for their appointments,

with no reason given.

This equates to 22 Doctors appointments

and 33 Nurse appointments

These appointments could have been offered to other patients who needed to see a Doctor or a Nurse BUT couldn’t get an appointment.

Help us to avoid this by letting reception know in advance whether you are unable to make your appointment and please don’t forget if you have an appointment.

Can`t make it? Cancel it!

Pharmacy First

Your local pharmacy is the place to go to get any prescription medicines and clinical advice for minor health concerns. But they do a lot more than that.

As well as helping with common illnesses – like sore throats, coughs, colds, tummy troubles and aches and pains – pharmacy teams can also help with stopping smoking, cutting down on alcohol, advice on safe sex and emergency contraception.

Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You don’t need an appointment – you can just walk in. Find your nearest Pharmacy here.
