HOW MANY GPs DO WE HAVE? We are often asked how many GPs we have, but the real question should be what is the GP patient ratio? As of July 2019, we have 13,200 patients, 55 GP sessions a week (there are two sessions a day), and each WTE (whole time equivalent) GP has a list of 1,900 patients, which is significantly below the Hampshire average of 2,300 patients. Our aim is to better this ratio and have WTE GPs with 1,850 patients each.

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): £9.00
  • 3-month PPC: £29.10
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00

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. 

A PPC can be purchased by phone, online or by post, and the 12-month PPC can be purchased by direct debit instalments.

There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
