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.
From 1 April 2015, the charges are:
If you will have to pay for two or more prescription items in three months, or more than 13 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a PPC.
There is further information about prescription exemptions and fees on the NHS website
PLEASE NOTE: WE NEED TO SEE PROOF OF YOUR PAYMENT EXEMPTION WHEN YOU COLLECT YOUR MEDICATION
Please allow 48 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
Question: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DISPENSARY AND A PHARMACY???Answer: A pharmacy can sell a wide range of medicines over the counter and issue medication from a range of Healthcare Professionals. A Dispensary can't!
Knightwick Surgery is a member of the Dispensing Doctors Association and as such can operate a DISPENSARY which can issue medication to our own patients, normally only prescribed by our own GPs. Except in very limited circumstances, we are unable to sell medicines over the counter.
If you are given a prescription from another Healthcare professional we may not be able to dispense the medication for you.
Prescriptions from Dentists MUST be taken to a retail Pharmacy (such as Boots, Rowlands or Ogles) as we are unable to dispense them here.
Private prescriptions or prescriptions from Hospital Consultants etc may be dispensed at the discretion of our GPs but please be aware that this may not always be possible.
The process will take the usual 2 working days as required for normal repeat medication requests.
If you need the medication urgently, it is probably quicker for you to call into the Pharmacy on your way home!
