NHS Prescription Charges
From 1st April 2019, the prescription charge per item is £9.15.
If you wish to pay the surgery by cheque please make these payable to "Whiteparish Surgery". You may also pay by debit card or cash. If you are ordering a prescription to be left at one of our "drop off" points, then we must receive payment in advance. You may telephone the dispensary with your debit card details.
Pre-payment certificates are available and patients who have to pay for more than 4 prescription items in 3 months or 14 items in 12 months may find it cheaper than pay-as-you-go.
You can buy a pre-payment certificate online, by post or by phone. Ring 0845 850 0030 to buy over the phone using your credit or debit card. A 12 month certificate can be purchased using a 10 month direct debit instalment payment.
Details of the current prescription charge and pre-payment certificate costs are available in leaflet HC12 - Charges and optical voucher values.
