You will need to complete a form and provide proof of identification in accordance with confidentiality & data protection guidance. Examples of acceptable identification are passport, driving license and bus pass.

Dispensing Arrangements

We are able to dispense medication to any patient living more than 1 mile from a pharmacy. Therefore your prescription medication can be collected from the dispensary following your consultation.

We sometimes need to order some items into stock and these normally arrive the following afternoon.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor or nurseat least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip.

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

Help with NHS costs

In England, around 90% of prescription items are dispensed free. This includes exemptions from charging for those on low incomes, such as:

  • those on specific benefits or through the NHS Low Income Scheme
  • those who are age exempt
  • those with certain medical conditions

More information is available at NHS Choices
