What if you are not eligible for free treatment?

If you do not fall into any of the above categories but you are on low income/receiving benefits, you may still be entitled to claim exemption from charges by filling in a HC1 form. Please ask our receptionist or the DHSS office for more information.

What about NHS treatments?

Band 1

£22.70

This covers:
  • Examination
  • Diagnosis (e.g: x-rays)
