Dr Vicky Pitts

Dr Vicky Pitts has been a GP at Broadmead for the past 8 years. Vicky has decided to leave the practice to seek a new position with the option of a potential partnership. Vicky will be leaving us in April 20, this is a sad loss for us but we wish her well for her future. We appreciate this can be unsettling for our patients so if you wish to chat to Vicky or Dixine (PM) about alternative GPs, then please do not hesitate to telephone to book an appointment. We are currently recruiting a replacement for Vicky.

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
  • 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
