The Dispensing Team
Dispensary opening hours: 8am to 1pm & 3pm to 6.30pm, Monday to Friday
The Dispensary is an important part of the practice and contributes a significant amount to the service the practice offers to patients. Our team of dispensers deal with all requests for prescriptions.
They manage the requests made by :
- Online using the NHS App
- Order form (indicate on right hand side of prescription) or by Letter (post boxes are at the front door, dispensary counter and Malpas chemist)
- If you are elderly or housebound, please call the Dispensary on weekdays between 8.00am and 9.00am
They offer a service to patients attending the surgery, dispensing prescriptions written by the doctor during a consultation and repeat medicines for dispensing patients who live more than one mile from any chemist. This is approximately two thirds of our patient list.
They have a good working relationship with the local pharmacy and pharmacist and assist patients with queries regarding their prescriptions which they take to the Chemist. Dispensers all have a recognised qualification or are working towards one.
For details on the dispensary and how to order repeat prescriptions, please go to the prescriptions page.
