Protected Time for Learning - The practice will be closed from 12.30 p.m. on Tuesday 14th November 2017.

 

The Practice is supported by NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group to provide and facilitate important training and learning events for GPs and practice staff to help them keep up to date with relevant information and continue to deliver the services at the practice.

 

When the practice is closed, there will be an On-Call GP service running.  In cases of medically urgent problems, please phone the practice for instructions on how to contact the On-Call GP service.  Thank you. 

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): £8.60
  • 2 items: £17.20
  • 3 items: £25.80
  • 4 items: £34.40

PRE-PAYMENT CERTIFICATES

  • 3 Months: £29.10
    (4 items in 3 month period - £33.60)
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
    (14 items in a 12 month period:  £117.60)
    Option to pay by a single payment or a monthly Direct Debit Installments

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.
