FLU VACCINATION CLINICS

It's that time of year again!

Our flu clinics are now available to book, both online or by telephoning Reception on 01726 829272. 

This year we aim to provide even better protection against 4 strains of flu rather than the previous 3 strains by immunising you with the Quadrivalent immunisation.  We have also taken advice on the best time to hold our clinics hence the first clinic being in October.

Par's main clinic will be on Saturday 7th October, Fowey's on Saturday 14th October and Polruan's on Thursday 19th October.  We also have additional clinics on during the week.

As in previous years the immunisation will be offered to everyone over the age of 65 as well as those with a chronic disease including diabetes, heart, kidney or respiratory disease.  We also offer protection for Carers.

If you are housebound and unable to attend the surgery, please contact Reception when your details will be taken and one of our GPs or Nurses will call out to administer your vaccination.

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): £8.05
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10

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
