All three surgeries have an on-site pharmacy from which your prescription can be dispensed.
If you take medication on a long-term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription by:
• Dropping off your request in person at either surgery, posting, enclosing a stamped addressed envelope.
• Online - you will need to register for this service in person at the reception desk (ID will be required).
• Phoning your preferred Chemist who will order your prescription and dispense it ready for you. They may even be able to offer a home delivery service. You will still need to allow 48 hours for your prescription request to be processed.
Ask your pharmacist about electronic prescribing service EPS
EPS is now running from most pharmacies which means that you do not need to collect a prescription from the surgery, it is sent electronically directly to the pharmacist. Ask to sign up for this service at your usual pharmacy.
Branch Surgery & Dispensing
We have provision to dispense to patients who live outside the town boundaries at our Brigstock Surgery. The Health Service Regulations on this matter are very strict and this service can only be offered to those patients who register as 'dispensing' 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.
