Dispensing

We are a dispensing practice which means that if you live a mile or more from the nearest pharmacy (as the crow flies) you can get your prescribed medicine at the Health Centre.  Unfortunately, we are not permitted to sell over the counter medicines or dispense to our patients who live within a mile of a pharmacy.

We run a computerised prescription and dispensing system.  If the Doctor prescribes for you during a consultation the prescription will be printed out in our dispensary.  Our trained dispensers will then make up your prescription ready for you to collect before you leave the Health Centre.

You will be asked to sign the back of the prescription and either pay for the items or state the reason for exemption from charges. Except for age exemption, we are required to see evidence of exemption every time.  If you do not have the required evidence with you, we have to mark the form to say that we have not seen the evidence for exemption.

Dispensary Survey 2021

As part of our effort to maintain a high quality dispensing service, we welcome patient feedback. To assist us further, if you take regular medication, we would be most grateful if you could assist us by completing our latest patient survey. Please click on the link below to print a copy of the survey. Once completed, please return your survey to the surgery.
