Flu Clinics

Update 15 Oct: We will now be running a limited walk-in clinic on 20 October.  We will run a further walk-in clinic 17 November.

Update: Owing to a temporary shortage of vaccines for our over 65s there will be no walk-in clinic on 20 October, however there will still be some booked appointments.  We will run a further walk-in clinic 17 November (date subject to change!).

We are ready to protect you from flu again this winter.  Call 01628 776900 to make an appointment at another time.  You can also book via the myGP app.

To be eligible for a vaccine you must be aged 65 and over, OR have a long term condition eg diabetes, asthma, heart disease etc, or be pregnant or a carer.  If you've had the vaccination before you are almost certainly eligible this year.

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): £8.40
  • 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
