The Dispensary is for patients who live more than 1 mile from a retail pharmacy. If you believe you fulfil this criteria (which is set by the government), please let us know as the practice is able to dispense most medications prescribed before you leave the surgery (saving any delay or need to visit a pharmacy).
The Dispensary is open to patients 08:00 – 12:00 and 15:00 – 17:30 Monday to Friday, and accepts telephone requests for repeat prescriptions from elderly and housebound patients only. Telephone calls will be accepted between 10:00 – 12:00 and 16:00 – 17:00.
Please allow up to 48 hours for prescriptions to be processed.
Blister Packs (aka dosette box, Multi-Dose-System)
For Dispensing patients who are on multiple medications (at least 4), we are happy to provide these in blister packs to help aid compliance. This means we put all medication in compartments at the correct times of day in a weekly box. Please ask a member of the team for more details.
Housebound Patients eligible for our Dispensing Services may also be eligible for free home delivery. For patients who do not qualify for free services, routine repeat medication can be delivered for a charge of £3.50 per delivery and can be a convenient way to receive your medication. Please contact Dispensary for more information.
