CHANGES TO DISPENSARY SERVICES AT SNAINTON SURGERY

From Monday 3rd December 2018 all our dispensing services will be centralised to our West Ayton Surgery site. You will still be able to collect your prescription from Snainton Surgery.

This step has been taken due to increasing workload, lack of space at our Snainton Surgery site and being able to provide a more cost effective service.

If the doctor feels you require an urgent prescription following your appointment they will dispense this for you. All other prescriptions will be prepared at West Ayton and you will be able to collect your items from Snainton Surgery or upon request from West Ayton Surgery. If eligible we can deliver your prescription to you.

There will now be a dedicated telephone number for dispensary 01723 864553 please ring this number for all dispensing services and a dispenser will be happy to help you.

Please allow two full working days before collecting your prescription.

In Times of Bereavement

In the unfortunate event that a person has passed away, there are three things that must be done in the first few days;

  • Get a medical certificate from your GP or hospital doctor (this is necessary to register the death)
  • Register the death within 5 days (8 days in Scotland). You will then receive the necessary documents for the funeral.
  • Make the necessary funeral arrangements.

Register the death

If the death has been reported to the coroner (or Procurator Fiscal in Scotland) they must give permission before registering the death.

You can register the death if you are a relative, a witness to the death, a hospital administrator or the person making the arrangements with the funeral directors.

You can use the ‘Register a Death’ page on the gov.uk website that will guide you through the process. This will also explain the registration process for Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Arrange the funeral

The funeral can usually only take place after the death is registered. Most people use a funeral director, though you can arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral directors

Choose a funeral director who’s a member of one of the following:

These organisations have codes of practice - they must give you a price list when asked.

Some local councils run their own funeral services, for example for non-religious burials. The British Humanist Association can also help with non-religious funerals.

Arranging the funeral yourself

Contact the Cemeteries and Crematorium Department of your local council to arrange a funeral yourself.

Funeral costs

Funeral costs can include:

  • funeral director fees
  • things the funeral director pays for on your behalf (called ‘disbursements’ or ‘third-party costs’), for example, crematorium or cemetery fees, or a newspaper announcement about the death
  • local authority burial or cremation fees

Funeral directors may list all these costs in their quotes.
