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.
From 1 April 2015, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 14 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
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
In certain circumstances it may be appropriate to prescribe your medication as an NHS script, but the prescribing policy that is applied to all our NHS prescriptions complies with guidance from the West Kent Clinical Commissioning Group and will be followed. This is because the prescribing doctor takes responsibility for monitoring your treatment.
If your consultant prescribes a medication that falls outside a licensed indication or is outside the local recommendations on prescribing, your consultant will need to provide you with a private prescription, which you will be able to take to any community pharmacy for dispensing. You will have to pay a charge for the drugs on this prescription even if you are normally exempt.
Please be aware that two working-days notice is needed for the practice to process NHS prescriptions.
Thank you for your cooperation.
