From the 1st January 2018, patients will be issued with a prescription and will now have to collect their dressing from our dispensary and bring the dressing with them to their appointment. If you do not bring your dressing with you we will unfortunately have to ask you to re-arrange your appointment so that you have the dressing with you.
Your dressing will be ordered by our dispensary. Please arrive at the surgery 10 minutes before your appointment so that you can collect your dressing from dispensary and then check in for your appointment with the nurse. Dispensary will need to see your exemption certificate or printed receipt or alternatively take payment from you.
If you are not exempt from paying for prescriptions you will need to pay for your dressings. We advise you to buy a pre-payment certificate so the cost of your dressings is much reduced for you.
To buy a pre-payment certificate:
- online visit www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/ppc
- by phone call 0300 330 1341
- Ask our dispensary for form FP95.
