Temporary changes to the Practice – from Monday 6 April 2020 for 12 weeks


As you are aware the NHS is currently dealing with the Coronovirus pandemic and in order to help us to help you, the practice needs to make some temporary changes to continue to provide healthcare and advice when you and your family need it most.


From Monday 6 April, you will NOT be able to walk into this practice any longer.


Should you need to speak to your practice, you will need to call the practice 0121 554 1812


If you have a medical problem you will be assessed by a GP/Practice Nurse over the telephone.


If they decide you need to be examined they will make an appointment for you at Tanhouse Clinic, Hamstead Road, Great Barr.


The NHS is limiting Face-to-Face consultations due to Covid-19.


It is important that we all do our bit to support the NHS locally as it continues to see and treat you, your family and friends.




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 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
