Dr Protheroe will be leaving the practice at the end of August. It is with much sadness that we wish her goodbye. She has been a fantastic part of the team for the last 13 years and we wish her all the very best in her future career.
If Dr Protheroe is your named GP the other doctors at the practice will take responsibility for your care in her absence.
We need 48 hours' notice for all requests for repeat prescriptions. Requests for repeat prescriptions can be made in writing, by fax, on line via our website or by calling at the surgery.
Please bring or send in your computer slip or list of the required medication in good time, remembering to make allowances for weekends and public holidays. Enclose an SAE if you would like your prescription posted to you.
We are unable to take orders or issue repeat prescriptions at weekends, during public holidays or outside normal surgery hours.
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.
From 1 April 2009, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC. The charge for a single prescription item is £7.20, whereas a three month PPC will cost you £28.25 and a 12 month PPC £104.00.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
