WOULD YOU LIKE YOUR MEDICATION DELIVERED TO YOUR HOME FOR FREE?
The dispensary is now offering a medication delivery service for housebound dispensing patients on repeat medication. If you have your medication dispensed by the surgery dispensary and would like us to deliver it to you at no cost, then please speak to a member of the dispensary team.
Repeat prescriptions will be issued, normally, for patients on long-term treatment, albeit regular reviews are undertaken. Requests for repeat prescriptions should be left in one of the 'repeat prescription boxes' provided. Please use the repeat slip attached to your last prescription whenever possible.
Alternatively, repeat prescriptions can be requested ONLINE by anyone aged 18 or over.
Repeat prescriptions cannot be requested by telephone.
Please allow at least 2 full working days before collection.
It is our policy, and that of the Government, to issue one month's supply of drugs at a time. We dispense medicines to those patients entitled, that is those who live more than one mile from a chemist.
You will need a username and password to request a repeat prescription online. If you have not already been issued these for online appointment booking purposes then please bring in a form of photo identification to obtain your username and password from reception or dispensary.
Parents/guardians cannot obtain the username and password for their children. This service is available for those aged 18 and over only.
Dispensing Review of the Use of Medicines (DRUM)
The dispensary is now able to conduct a confidential face to face review of any of our dispensing patients medication. This will include: drug interactions, potential side effects, inhaler technique and also any problems that the patient may be experiencing. Please ask the dispensary for more information in regards to DRUMs.
