We are a dispensing practice but our license only permits us to dispense to patients who live more than one mile from their nearest chemist.

We currently dispense to around half of our patient list and we have a team of well qualified dispensers who will ensure that medication is available for collection within 3 working days of your request.
Please note it is the patients responsibility to order their repeat medication in time.
If you are exempt from paying for your prescriptions for any reason other than your age, please ensure that you present proof of your entitlement each time you collect your medication.
If you run out of Medication when the Surgery is closed you can ask your usual chemist for an advance on your next prescription or telephone the Out of Hours Provider, 111.
It is the patients responsibility to order well in advance and never allow themselves to run out of medication.
The NHS Prescription Charge will be £8.60 for eacht item dispensed from the 1st April 2017.The NHS Prescription Charge is a contribution to the NHS; it is not a payment to the surgery or its dispensary and it is not related to the cost of your medicine(s).If you need 4 or more prescriptions in three months or 13 or more prescriptions a year, you could save money with a Prescription Prepayment Certificate.

Ask a member of the dispensary team for more details.

Prescriptions are free for some people- ask a member of the dispensary team for advice or visit www.nhs.uk/healthcosts
