Flu Vaccination
Dear Patients

This is information about this year's flu vaccination campaign during the Covid pandemic. All patients will be invited to a specific appointment to comply with Infection Control. The first clinics will be on weekend days for our most vulnerable shielded patients. After these clinics , the remaining patients will receive a text or letter confirming the time slot and date, during September to November. There will be a further general text or letter with more information in the next month. We have approximately 2000 patients to vaccinate out of a total of 9000 in the practice.



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.

NHS prescription costs

The current prescription charge is £9.15 per item 2020

A three monthly PPC is £29.65 and could save you money if you need more than three prescribed items in three months.

A 12-month certificate is £105.90 and could save you money if you need more than 12 prescribed items in a year.

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.
