NHS Industrial Action

Dear Patient, The combined NHS industrial action is putting increased strain across GP services. Please remember to consult local pharmacies, NHS 111 & the NHS website where appropriate. We are working hard to maintain our service and  we thank you in advance for your patience. Thank you, Central Surgery.

NHS Low Income Scheme (LIS)

If you have a low income, you may be able to get help with NHS costs through the NHS Low Income Scheme (LIS).

The scheme covers:

prescription costs
dental costs
eyecare costs
healthcare travel costs
wigs and fabric supports

How much help you get depends on your weekly income and necessary outgoings, plus any savings or investments you have at the time you apply. If the amount you have left is low, you may be able to get help through the NHS Low Income Scheme. Any help you’re entitled to is also available to your partner, if you have one.

If you have already paid for treatment, you can apply for a refund at the same time as you apply for the scheme.
