Information for NHS Patients – WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON NEW NHS PATIENTS
Hampsteads in Northallerton offers free NHS places to all children of adult members of the practice. In addition we may be able to treat adults free of charge on the NHS providing that they have a valid exemption and the practice has capacity.
You do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment if, when your treatment starts, you are:
Under 19 and in full-time education
Pregnant or you’ve had a baby in the 12 months before treatment starts
You can also get free NHS dental treatment if, when the treatment starts or when you’re asked to pay:
You’re included in an award of Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit guarantee credit
You’re named on, or entitled to, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
You’re named on a valid HC2 certificate
If you’re named on a valid HC3 certificate, you may not have to pay for all your NHS dental treatment. HC2 and HC3 certificates are issued under the NHS Low Income Scheme.
You will not be exempt from paying for NHS dental treatment because you receive one of the benefits below when paid on their own:
Contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance
Disability Living Allowance
Council Tax Benefit
Pension Credit savings credit
