FLUATHON - Sat October 13 at THAXTED DAY CENTRE  

Appointments now available for our annual Fluathon.  Because of building work, Fluathon is in Thaxted Day Centre this year. You are eligible for a free NHS flu vaccine if you are 65 or over, pregnant, a carer, or have a long-term condition.  

Half-Marathon Raising Funds to Equip our new Extension.   A patient is running the Windsor marathon for us in September. To donate via Just Giving, click here

Our thanks to rrt, whose burger lunch raised £2,720 and to the residents of Vicarage Mead who raised £622 with their coffee morning.

Building Work Commences 17 September.   The first few weeks are likely to be noisy.

We will do what we can to use the quieter rooms, but please bear with us.  We can offer quieter evening and weekend appointments at Saffron Walden and Great Dunmow.

Thaxted Surgery has again been rated best in West Essex - 2018 National Patient Survey

Thank you for your continued support and please bear with us through a difficult period of building.

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): £8.40
  • 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
