APPOINTMENTS: "Keep it or cancel it!  Don't waste it!"  Ever wondered why it can be difficult to get an appointment with a GP/Nurse?  Last month, 436 people failed to attend their booked appointment!  This is equal to 72.5 hours of wasted appointments!!! This is such a waste of NHS time and appointments are in high demand.  PLEASE...if you cannot make your appointment - cancel it! 

Need Help With Prescription Costs?

If you have a low income, the NHS Low Income Scheme could help you pay for;

  • NHS prescriptions
  • NHS dental treatment charges
  • the cost of sight tests, glasses and contact lenses
  • the cost of travelling to receive NHS treatment
  • NHS wigs and fabric supports

The amount of help you are entitled to, depends on your household income and outgoings.  You can apply for a certificate to receive free or reduced cost treatment.  All you need to do is complete an HC1 Application Form. 

DOWNLOAD: HC1 form https://www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/sites/default/files/2018-09/HC1%20September%202018.pdf or you can get a hard copy from our main reception.
