Appointments

Fed up of the long wait time? So are we! Please help us to help you - if you are unable to attend your appointment or no longer need it, please contact the surgery immediately so that your appointment is available for your neighbour.

If every person who did not need their appointment any more cancelled it, then there would be at least 58 extra GP appointments and 54 nurse appointments available per month!


Wasted Medicine

Every year millions of pounds worth of prescription medication is wasted across West Cheshire alone. Over the entire country, this is a huge amount of money.

If you are taking medication, please consider the following:

  • Only order what you need
  • Check what's in your prescription bag before you leave the pharmacy
  • Finish your course of medication, even if you start to feel better
  • Don't stockpile medication
  • Review your medicines regularly with your pharmacist and/or GP

We currently have Medical Students working with us.

Medical students may be required to sit in during consultations. If you do not feel comfortable with this, please inform a member of staff when you book your appointment or as soon as possible on arrival.

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.

Private Prescriptions

There is a charge for patients to get private prescriptions. The reason for this is that private prescriptions do not fall into the practices General Medical Services contract.

The charge per PRESCRIPTION will be £15.00.

You should pay this fee at reception

Pharmacy

The price of each individual medicine is displayed during the order process. You will be charged per tablet/unit of medicine. In England all NHS prescriptions cost £9.00 from a pharmacy, and all private prescriptions have a minimum order value of £5.00 per item on top of the script fee of £15.00, irrespective of the quantity of the particular item. 

Q&A:

What is the difference between an NHS prescription and a private prescription?

  • Cost - an NHS prescription is much cheaper 
    An NHS prescription costs £9.00 which includes the cost of the doctor issuing the prescription and the cost of the medication subsidised by the NHS.
    A private prescription, you pay the full cost of the medication. In addition, you must now also pay a fee of £15.00 to the practice for the script, on top of the prescription fee.

  • Availability - not all treatments are available on an NHS prescription

Do all practices charge a script fee to issue private prescription?

Not all GP practices charge a fee for issuing a private prescription. It will depend on whether private prescriptions fall into the practices General Medical Services contract.
However the standard fee for a GP practice to issue a prescription privately ranges from approximately £15.00 - £20.00
With a private clinic, the fees start from £50 upwards.
