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

Please inform the surgery if the hospital makes any changes to your regular medication.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor 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.
The NHS has issued guidance that recommends GPs do not routinely prescribe medication for certain self-limiting conditions or those that lend themselves to self-care where medications can be purchased easily at low cost. Over the coming months the practice will be reviewing it’s prescribing in these areas. A self-care guide for minor illness can be found here. We would appreciate your support in this.
