ANNOUNCEMENT

Dear Patients,

As we move into the next phase of the COVID19 pandemic we all would like
say a huge thank you to our patients for your help and understanding
this year.

Throughout the Lockdown we have remained open and available to look
after you although you will probably be aware that we have been trying
to provide as much care as possible by telephone / video consultation to
reduce the risk of infection. Some routine proceedures were temporarily
put off but we are now working through the back log.

However, some changes need to stay as we know the COVID19 virus contues
to circulate and cause serious illness. We will continue to provide care
by telephone / video consultation wherever possible. Throughout the
pandemic we have seen patients face to face where clinically necessary
and this will contuine. We will continue to protect each other by
patients and staff wearing masks / face coverings for consultations and
by using social distancing and restricting the number of people in the
surgery building. We will continue to do everything we can to make sure
that coming to the surgery does not put you at increased risk of
catching COVID19.

The single most helpful thing that you, our patients, have done is that
you have heeded the advice about preventing the spread of the virus and
Milton has not been overwhelmed by the pandemic.

Although 111 remains in charge of advising and treating people who may
have COVID19 please remember that we are still here to look after you
for other illnesses.

The Milton Surgery Team

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): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

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
