Coronavirus (COVID-19) - NHS
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It's caused by a virus called coronavirus.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home if you have either:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do.

NHS prescription charges
from 1 April 2018
From the 1st April 2018 prescription charges will increase from £8.60 to £8.80 for each medicine or appliance dispensed. To ensure that those with the greatest need, and who are not already exempt from the charge, are protected we have frozen the cost of the prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) for another year. The 3-month PPC remains at £29.10 and the cost of the annual PPC will stay at £104. Taken together, this means prescription charge income is expected to rise broadly in line with inflation.
Details of the revised charges for 2018 to 2019 can be found below.
- Single charge: £8.80
- 3 month PPC (no change): £29.10
- 12 month PPC (no change): £104.00
The practice would like to apologise for the increased waiting times to see a doctor. The practice has seen a reduction in their staffing levels and we are working to remedy this.
