Dispensing Arrangements

Dispensary telephone line 01594 562 437 Option 3 only available between 9 am and 1 pm

Please note that as from 1 July 2014, the dispensary phonelines will be open from 9am – 1pm on Monday to Friday.

The practice can dispense its own medicines to patients who choose to avail themselves of the service and who (a) live in a rural area at a distance of at least one mile (as the crow flies) from the nearest pharmacy, or (b) can prove serious difficulty of access to a pharmacy. The Health Service regulations on this matter are very strict and the service is available only to those patients who register as dispensing patients when they join the practice or when they move house. Please ask the receptionist for details. Dispensary is closed from 1.00 pm until 2.30 pm each day at Yorkley. Opening hours listed below. All patients who are able to have prescriptions on a repeat basis (i.e. without seeing the doctor each time) will be given a list of the medicines which they will be allowed to have. Only items on this list will be given without seeing a doctor. Repeat medication can be ordered by telephone, by post, online via this website or by a visit to the surgery. If possible please allow 48 hours (2 working days) for a prescription to be prepared. However if you require your medication sooner than this please discuss with one of the dispensers. If you would like us to send your prescription to either our branch surgery, or a local pharmacy, please advise us when ordering. Prescriptions not ordered directly from the surgery may incur extra time. If you wish your prescription to be posted to your home address please provide an SAE.

If you would like to register for Online Services to enable you to order repeat prescriptions and make appointments to see a doctor or for a blood test, please call in to reception with proof of your identity.

When ordering medication by any method, please allow 48 hours (2 working days) before collection if possible
