Dispensary Arrangements

We operate a dispensary at both of our practice sites. We maintain a stock of commonly used medications and have twice daily deliveries from our pharmaceutical suppliers. Drugs will be dispensed to all of our registered patients who live more than a mile from a pharmacy or chemist.

Dispensing patients should present the prescription they are given to our dispensers who will generally dispense your medication while you wait. On occasions when we do not have the prescribed item in stock we will advise you of the expected availability and a time at which you will be able to collect your prescription.

Patients who live within a mile of a pharmacy or chemist should take their prescription to that outlet where it will be dispensed. Patients who live in Long Hanborough, Freeland and Church Hanborough will have the option of getting their prescriptions dispensed at Hanborough Pharmacy, in addition to other pharmacies in the area, now that they cannot be dispensed directly from the doctors’ dispensary. Prescription charges are displayed in the surgeries and, if due, must be paid at the time that the prescription is dispensed.
