Noticeboard

Please see our two new job Vacancies (click on the Vacancies tab on the right menu).

From December 2018, the only Gluten Free products to be prescribed on the NHS are Bread (includes rolls and part baked bread) and Mixes (does not include flour).

This is in response to the NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) and NHS England public consultation.

Gluten free products are now more widely available from shops and supermarkets for you to purchase instead.

Patients from Abroad

The Practice doctors have a duty to provide free of charge treatment which they consider to be "immediately necessary" or "emergency treatment" to any person within the practice area, regardless of whether that patient is an overseas visitor or registered with the practice.

If treatment is provided free of charge, prescription charges are applicable under the usual rules.

An appointment for an overseas visitor to see a doctor will be made on the understanding that a charge may be payable.

Secondary Care /Hospital Treatment

Patients from overseas who are referred by a doctor to a secondary care provider are liable to be charged by the secondary care provider irrespective of whether the patient has been given free treatment under the NHS.
