Collection of Completed Prescriptions

Please allow 48 hours for your prescription to be ready for collection. Prescriptions are likely to be ready after 1400. They can be delivered to selected pharmacists if requested (see point 5 above).

Personal Arrangements with Pharmacists for Housebound Patients

Some local pharmacists operate a system where they collect repeat prescriptions from the Surgery on your behalf, and arrange delivery to your home. If you have made such an arrangement with your pharmacist, please let us know when you order your medication. You must arrange this service direct with your pharmacist and not with the Surgery.

Return of Unused Medications

Please note that we do not accept unused medications, these should be returned to your local pharmacy.
