We can arrange to have your prescription collected for you from your doctor’s surgery and have it dispensed and ready for you to collect from the pharmacy. This will save you having to make a separate journey to the surgery and prevent you having to wait in the pharmacy for your prescription to be dispensed. Also, if any of your medication has to be ordered for your prescription we will ensure that everything is ready for you when you call in. Please let any member of staff know that you would like your prescription collecting and which surgery you belong to.
