Flu Clinic dates

IMPORTANT - change to drop-in session on 25th Oct at St Giles Surgery.  Due to the staggered supply of vaccines and the exceptionally high turnout at our drop-in session on 2 Oct, the flu clinic planned for St Giles Surgery on 25 Oct will now be by appointment only.  Please contact your surgery to make an appointment.  Additional clinics are being planned for early November.

If you are under 18 and eligible for a flu vaccine, please contact your surgery to make an appointment at one of our Saturday morning clinics. 

For more info, please look at 'Flu Clinics 2018' on the right hand side under 'Further Information'.

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 (per item): £8.05
  • 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
