    BE AWARE

    If someone claiming to be from the NHS contacts you by phone and asks for a payment, please be aware they could be a criminal trying to trick you. Most NHS services are free at the point of use and NHS professionals are very unlikely to ask for fees such as prescription charges by phone. We advise you not to share bank account details or any other information unless you are sure of who you are talking to.

    Prescription Cost

    The NHS prescription charge is £9.00 for each item from 1st April 2019. Some items have more than one charge, a member of the dispensary team will explain if that is the case. The NHS prescription charge is a contribution to the NHS; it is not a payment to the surgery or its dispensary and it is not related to the cost of your medicine(s). If you need at least 4 prescription items in three months , you could save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate. Visit www.nhs.uk/healthcosts Prescriptions are free for some people , ask a member of the dispensary team or visit www.nhs.uk/healthcosts.
