NHS prescription charges

from 1 April 2018

From the 1st April 2018 prescription charges will increase from £8.60 to £8.80 for each medicine or appliance dispensed. To ensure that those with the greatest need, and who are not already exempt from the charge, are protected we have frozen the cost of the prescription prepayment certificates (PPC) for another year. The 3-month PPC remains at £29.10 and the cost of the annual PPC will stay at £104. Taken together, this means prescription charge income is expected to rise broadly in line with inflation.

Details of the revised charges for 2018 to 2019 can be found below.

Prescription charges

  • Single charge: £8.80
  • 3 month PPC (no change): £29.10
  • 12 month PPC (no change): £104.00

Invitation for patients aged 18-30 to attend day out at Alton Towers and lymphoma workshop.

I just wanted to let you know about a free workshop and day out that Lymphoma Action are running for lymphoma patients aged 18-30 at Alton Towers on Sunday 14th – Monday 15th October.

The workshop on Sunday 14th October, 11am-4pm, is part of our Live your Life programme which has been designed for people who have recently finished lymphoma treatment or are on watch and wait to help them adapt and find their ‘new normal’. The workshop forms part of the recovery package, and gives patients a chance to meet and share experiences and covers topics including:

-        Understanding lymphoma

-        Coping with emotions

-        Healthy living after treatment

-        Education and work after treatment

We are then offering people the chance to stay overnight at Alton Towers with dinner and accommodation included, and enjoy a free pass to Alton Towers on Monday 15th October.

If you would like further information please click on the link invitation letter and this will tell you how to apply for free place.
