Dispensing

We are a dispensing practice and can supply medicines for all patients who do not live within a mile of a local pharmacy. Other patients may use the pharmacy of their choice.

The Dispensary is open 8.30 am to 12.00pm and 3.00pm to 6.00 pm Monday to Friday.

Outside surgery opening times prescriptions may be dispensed by pharmacies and a list of these can be found on display in the Dispensary window and in local newspapers.

Prescription charges

The government charges for each item dispensed, and the money collected by us from dispensing patients goes to the Treasury. From time to time this may vary and we will charge you accordingly. You will be asked to sign the back of the prescription form to confirm that you have paid the charge, or are exempt. Your certificate of exemption, or letter of authority may be requested if you are collecting on behalf of someone else.

Please remember that we are do not issue medication from prescription without payment - so please ensure that you have sufficient money (cash, debit card or cheque) with you at your consultation if you are anticipating a prescription may be dispensed from the surgery.

Repeat prescriptions review

At regular intervals you will be required to consult the doctor or nurse to ensure that all is well with your condition. The review date at the bottom of your prescription repeat medication slip will tell you when this review is due. Many patients will be attending annual reviews with the Practice Nurses as part of their management of a long-term condition, the medication review is part of this annual review process and the date will be updated at that time. We will never refuse repeat medication requests but will ask you to attend if required.

Prescription order checklist

  • Allow three working days, excluding weekends and bank holidays
  • Collect as soon as possible
  • Give longer notice if it is an unusual request, or pre-order if you wish to collect after a booked routine clinic appointment
  • Patients who normally use a chemist may have their requested prescription forms sent from the surgery to the chemist of their choice which saves an extra journey to your surgery
  • Don't forget to bring your money with you if you pay, or your exemption card if you don't. We cannot release medication without payment
