All in One Medication Reviews

To improve our service to our patients, we have introduced an ‘all in one’ medication review. This will reduce the number of times patients need to attend the surgery for routine review appointments every year. Therefore, patients who fit certain medical criteria, will be called around their month of birth to come in and be seen for a review.

Some patients may need further tests or reviews during the year, so we can maintain quality of care. Where this is already the case it will not involve any change in current practice for the patient.

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.

View the cost of prescriptions on the NHS website.

You can also find out if you are entitled to free prescriptions.
