We have provision to dispense to patients who live outside the town boundaries. The health service regulations on this matter are very strict and this service can only be offered to those patients who register as dispensing patients when they join the practice or when they move house. For further information, please telephone the surgery and a member of our dispensary staff will be pleased to answer your enquiries.
The practice is able to dispense medication for patients who live more than one mile from the nearest chemist. Medication can be collected from our dispensary following consultation with the doctor.
We are sorry but, in order to ensure that we are able to maintain the current level of turnaround, the dispensary will no longer be open during extended hours.
This will take effect from Monday 8th January 2018. It will be open daily from 8.00am until 6.30pm.
We will also be closing every Thursday between 2.00pm - 4.00pm from 1.12.2017
