CHANGES TO DISPENSARY SERVICES AT SNAINTON SURGERY

From Monday 3rd December 2018 all our dispensing services will be centralised to our West Ayton Surgery site. You will still be able to collect your prescription from Snainton Surgery.

This step has been taken due to increasing workload, lack of space at our Snainton Surgery site and being able to provide a more cost effective service.

If the doctor feels you require an urgent prescription following your appointment they will dispense this for you. All other prescriptions will be prepared at West Ayton and you will be able to collect your items from Snainton Surgery or upon request from West Ayton Surgery. If eligible we can deliver your prescription to you.

There will now be a dedicated telephone number for dispensary 01723 864553 please ring this number for all dispensing services and a dispenser will be happy to help you.

Please allow two full working days before collecting your prescription.

Dispensing

If you live more than a mile from a chemist you will (unless you specifically ask not to be) be registered as a dispensing patient. This means that our dispensary can supply you with prescription medicines, rather than having to take a written prescription to the chemist to be dispensed.

If you live less than a mile from a chemist (e.g. in Thornton-le-Dale, Ayton or most of Crossgates) you will be given a written prescription to be dispensed by a chemist. In certain special circumstances (e.g. if you are housebound and have difficulty getting to a chemist) you can apply to NHS England to become a dispensing patient.

Our dispensaries cannot sell you items that you would normally buy across the counter at a chemist. However if you are eligible for free prescriptions and the item is also available on prescription (e.g. paracetamol for children) you may ask us to supply it.

All dispensing patients may ask for a written prescription to be taken to the chemist if they wish. This may be advisable, for example, if (though it rarely happens) we are out of stock of an item that you need urgently.
