Notice is given that the Annual General Meeting of the Patient Participation Group will be held virtually via Microsoft Teams on Tuesday 7th September 2021 via the internet as we are still unable to hold the meeting face to face due to the staged removal of restrictions on NHS premises as a result of Covid 19.

Patients of the Practice are invited to attend and should you wish to join the meeting we would ask you to contact Rachel Hurst, Patient Services Manager via e mail moorland.med@nhs.net

so that you can be invited to the meeting via email.

We are not here to suffer physical, or verbal abuse from patients, their relatives or members of the Public.

 

This practice operates a zero-tolerance policy with regards to violence or abuse. ANY patient or their relative who use threatening or offensive behaviour, either verbal or physical, in person or via the telephone or social media could be removed from the practice in order to protect our staff and other patients.

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 prescription charges from 1 April 2020

Charges for NHS prescriptions and wigs and fabric supports for 2020 to 2021.

The National Health Service (Charges for Drugs and Appliances) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 (“the Amendment Regulations”) will be laid before Parliament to increase certain National Health Service charges in England from 1 April 2020.

This year we have increased the prescription charge by 15 pence from £9 to £9.35 for each medicine or appliance dispensed. The cost of prescription pre-payment certificates (PPC) will also be increased: 3-month PPC increases by 55p to £30.25 and 12-month PPC increases by £1.90 to £108.10. The increase is in line with inflation. Charges for wigs and fabric supports will also be increased in line with inflation.
