Noticeboard

It has come to our attention that certain comments have been posted on social media concerning White House Farm Medical Centre.

There is always a GP available on the premises and the comment stating there was "no Doctor" is incorrect.

We have a self service machine available in the reception area for you to record weight and Blood pressure.

Please ask our reception staff for a token to use this.

NHS APP for Covid Pass

A letter with the QR code can be requested by ringing 119.

The Covid pass is on the NHS App. 

If you require the QR code  for your children 12 years and over via the NHS App, they need to have the App in their own name. This means assessment of the child and an appointment with a GP is necessary. Please arrange this well in advance of your planned holiday. Thank you.

We are now offering telephone appointments which can be booked either through online services or the NHS App.

If you are coming to the surgery for a face to face appointment, please attend on your own and wear a face mask. Adults who require physical or emotional support can have one carer or relative attend with them if not having someone present would cause distress or difficulty.

Children can be accompanied by one parent or legal guardian.

Please be aware for second vaccinations there needs to be an interval of 8 weeks before the second vaccine can be given.

We are now able to provide Covid vaccinations for our patients at the surgery.

Please contact our reception in the first instance.

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.

  • current prescription charge – £9.35 per item (£17.20 per pair of elastic hosiery)
  • three-month PPC – £30.25; this will save you money if you need more than three prescribed items in three months 
  • 12-month PPC – £108.10; this will save you money if you need more than 12 prescribed items in a year

If you will have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 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
