EXEMPT FROM WEARING A FACE COVERING?

Following the latest government advice with regards to face coverings -

If you are exempt please do not ask your doctor for a letter.

There is no requirement for evidence for exemption. It is sufficient for you to self-declare this.

If you wish to travel on public transport:

You can download and print a card and carry it with you. You may want to print it and wear it on a lanyard or attach it to your clothing. You can show it if you are asked why you are not wearing a face covering. You can also display it on your phone.

This is available on the Transport for London website below

Dr Knox

We are sad to be saying goodbye to Dr Ramona Knox.

Dr Knox is moving to the Midlands with her family and we will miss her greatly. Dr Knox has been a highly valued member of the team.

We wish Dr Knox and her family all the very best.

 

If you are a patient of Dr Knox you will be reallocated a new GP but not until the pandemic level is lower – at the moment as I hope you appreciate it is all hands to the deck. We do recommend that you try to see the same GP for continuity. More on new appointment availability coming soon.

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): £9.15
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £105.90
  • 3-month PPC: £29.65

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 12 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
