You can ask us to arrange for your prescription to be sent to the chemist of your choice. If you request this service, please allow the chemist 48 hours to make up your medication.
You may be asked to see a doctor or practice nurse before your next repeat prescription is due. This is so that your medication can be assessed and altered as necessary.

What to do with old medicine
Take it to the pharmacy you got it from or bring it in to the surgery. Do not put it in your household bin or flush it down the toilet.
As qualified healthcare professionals, pharmacists can offer advice on minor illnesses such as:
- sore throats
- tummy trouble
- aches and pains
They can also advise on medicine that you can buy without a prescription.
Many pharmacies are open until late and at weekends. You do not need an appointment.
Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.
