Noticeboard

WALK-IN EMERGENCY CLINIC - In response to complaints and suggestions about the appointment system, the Practice has chosen to adopt a walk-in emergency surgery.  Any patient with a single URGENT problem, needing to be seen the same day, may choose to attend between 8.30am and 10.30am on a sit and wait basis. Patients will be seen in order of priority.

NAMED GP FOR PATIENTS

Aldergate Medical Practice provides all patients with a named GP to oversee their care.  This will not affect systems already in place and you will be able to continue to book appointments with other GP's in the Practice.

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
