We are a dispensing Practice. If you live more than one mile from a chemist, we can supply your medicines. If your Doctor wants you to have a repeat prescription, you may order this without needing to see the Doctor. Please make your order, allowing two full working days before you need to collect it. This allows time for the Doctors to sign your prescription and for drugs that we don't stock to be ordered in.
There are various way you can order your repeat prescription::
To order your repeat prescriptions online you will first need to register. To do this you will need a copy of a registration letter which contains key information about our Practice and log-in data that is specific to you. For security reasons these details can only be given to you in person. Please therefore call in to the Practice and ask the Receptionist for your registration letter.
The Dispensary is open for collection of medication:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 8.30 am - 6.15 pm,
Saturday 8.30 – 10.30 am.
Urgent requests for medication
If you find you have run out of medicine and need to place an order urgently, please telephone 01305 848333.
If you have unwanted medicines at home: tablets, capsules or liquids, please return these to the Dispensary.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a Doctor at regular intervals to review your regular medications and a notification will appear on your repeat slip.
The Doctors work within the Dorset Clinical Commissioning Group Prescribing Formulary
These charges apply in England only. In Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales prescriptions are free of charge.
