Friends and Family Test


The FFT has been introduced to General Practice to allow patients who use GP services to have the opportunity to feedback on their experience.  It will provide a continuous feedback loop between our patients and the Practice and will be used to improve services.  The FFT is anonymous and has been kept as simple as possible.  The FFT must use standard wording and must include at least one follow-up question.  The results will be published in the Practice and will be forwarded to NHS England monthly.


                                  Help us to improve the services provided to and for you - tell us what you think; take the FFT.

 Electronic Prescription Service


The Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) is an NHS service. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescription to the pharmacy you choose to get your medicines or appliances from. 


 For more information please enquire at Reception.


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
  • 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. 

  • Telephone advice and order line 0300 330 1341
  • General Public - Buy or Renew a PPC On-line
  • Leaflets available in the waiting room for postal applications
