Noticeboard

Upcoming Appointment Changes:

We will be changing our appointment system from 15th April 2022. We will no longer be asking patients to call at 4pm for an early morning appointment the next day. Instead we ask patients to call at 8am on the day that they require an appointment. 

Household Support Fund

Information from Cambridgeshire County Council

We understand money can sometimes feel a little tight especially after Christmas.

If you need support paying for food or energy bills to get you through the New Year, the Household Support Fund could help.

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): £9.35
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £108.10
  • 3-month PPC: £30.25

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
