We are a dispensing practice. This means that if you live more than a mile from a community pharmacy or chemist we are able to dispense your medication at the surgery. Occasionally due to difficulties getting certain medications from our suppliers you may be given a prescription to take to the chemist.
We regret that, at the moment, we are unable to take credit or debit card payments for prescription charges. Payments must be made in cash or by cheque before items may be taken away from the surgery.
Regular medication may be supplied , if agreed by your doctor. Please request your repeat prescription by returning your computer slip to the surgery, having ticked which items you require. The information can be faxed to us on 01886 880037, or sent to us via the Patient Access system using your unique PIN code (please ask reception for more details) We will only accept requests for prescriptions over the telephone in exceptional circumstances. We would ask that you give us 2 days notice before you need your medicines as these have to be ordered from our suppliers.
Medication Delivery Service
We have free medication delivery service available. Full information how to apply for the delivery service and how to arrange for your repeat medication to be ordered are available from the surgery.

You will still need to see the doctor at least every six months for them to confirm that you can continue to take the medication prescribed and at least annually you will need to have a Medication review with the doctor.
