Noticeboard

As of 22nd May 2017, Spring Hall Medical Practice will be working in partnership with Care UK to provide additional telephone calls to our patients and to support our local team and this will improve and increase access to doctors.


The Care UK clinicians will work in exactly the same way as our local clinicians. Medical records will be accessed by Care UK clinicians through a secure network, and your information will not be used by any other third parties.


Patients can ‘Opt-Out’ of the service offered by notifying the practice.


Thank you for your co-operation. We hope you find the new service beneficial.

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
