Dispensing and Prescriptions
For patients living more than one mile, as the crow flies, from a pharmacy and those who can demonstrate ‘severe difficulty’ in getting to a pharmacy the practice provides its own dispensing service. If you are unsure whether you can benefit from this regulation the staff will be pleased to advise you.
Patients on regular medications have their treatment details stored in the computer and copied on to the right hand side prescription counterfoil. When further supplies are required please tick the items needed on counterfoil and hand it into the dispensary.
Requests may be telephoned 24 hours a day/7 days a week to our prescription line 01434 688351. Please speak clearly to avoid mistakes.
Please allow a full 48 hours between the request for medicines and picking them up.
Please provide SAEs if you wish us to post your prescription to you.
PLEASE NOTE: The Dispensary is closed each day from 12 noon to 1.15pm.
