Noticeboard

Anyone attending the surgery must now wear a covering over their nose & mouth; whether it be to attend an appointment, collect a prescription, or accompany someone they care for.

Please do not arrive EARLY for your appointment.  In accordance with current social distancing guidelines, we are not permitting patients to wait inside the building. You may be asked to return to your vehicle and wait for your clinician to become available.  Please therefore be mindful of the weather conditions when setting out and come prepared.

We would like to thank you all for your understanding and support during these challenging times.  We continue to do our upmost to ensure we offer high standard healthcare in a manner that is safe for both patients and our dedicated staff.

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.
