Practice Collection Service

If you take medication on repeat prescription you may wish to take advantage of a free service offered by several of the local pharmacies. They will offer to collect prescriptions from the surgery and have the medication ready for collection at an agreed time at their premises. In certain special circumstances they may also be prepared to deliver, such as to the elderly, disabled and housebound.

Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
