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

Views wanted on access to GP services


NHS Blackpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – the organisation which plans and buys healthcare services on behalf of residents wants to hear from local people about access to GP services in the town.


In 2017 the Extended Access service was launched. This service means that anybody registered with a Blackpool GP practice can book an appointment to see a GP, nurse or other health professional at Whitegate Drive Health Centre, upto 8pm in the evening or from 8am – 8pm on weekends.


You don’t have to have used this service to share your views. The CCG would like to hear from you on what you think about these evening and weekend appointments should you ever need to access them in future, have already accessed these or would never intend to.


All views are thoroughly appreciated. By completing this survey you will be helping the CCG to develop GP services which meet your needs and those of other local people.


For example, if the majority of people tell the CCG they wouldn’t be interested in seeing a GP or other clinician on a Sunday, then it may be decided not to offer Sunday appointments. This helps to make sure that only appointments which you have said are most convenient for you are offered, the right professionals are in place to deliver care and that the CCG doesn’t unnecessarily spend money on services which won’t be used.


To complete the survey please visit the CCG website here: The survey will close on Wednesday 16 May 2018.
