Dispensary and Prescription Ordering
Changes to Dispensary phoneline times and availability:
We will be changing the times you can contact our Dispensary at the surgery from Monday 4th December, to between the hours of 10:00am – 12:00pm only.
Moving forwards, will be unable to take medication requests over the telephone and ask that you use one of the other ordering methods available.
These include, the NHS app, System Online (please ask at reception for login details and setup), or using a paper repeat slip (usually given out by your Pharmacy upon collection of your medication).
We believe this will help increase efficiency in how we deal with your queries and requests in the future.
We would like to thank you for your cooperation and understanding in advance.
