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.

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): £8.80
  • 2 items: £17.60
  • 3 items: £26.40
  • 4 items: £35.20

PRE-PAYMENT CERTIFICATES

  • 3 Months: £29.10
    (4 items in 3 month period - £35.20)
  • 12-month prepayment certificate (PPC): £104.00
    (14 items in a 12 month period:  £123.20)
    Option to pay by a single payment or a monthly Direct Debit Installments

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.
