We are a busy doctors dispensing practice and have a dispensary at both our Bawtry and Finningley sites.  We are able to dispense medication for patients who live over 1.6km from the nearest chemist; NHS regulations state that we are not able to dispense for those who live within 1.6km of the nearest chemist.

 

  

Our aim is to provide a friendly and efficient dispensary service to everyone.

 

Order Repeat Prescriptions

 

What is a Repeat Prescription?

Some prescriptions are authorised by your doctor as a repeat.  This means that you can obtain further supplies without seeing the doctor first.
You can tell if you have a repeat because the details will be printed on the tear off slip attached to your prescription or for online users the medication will be available for you to order online.

 

It is the policy of this Practice to issue prescriptions for a maximum of 28 days supply only with the exception of HRT and contraceptive supplies.

 

Between the hours of 6.30pm and 8am including Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays please telephone the out of hours GP service on 111 if you have run out of your medication.

 

Medication Reviews

If you are receiving repeat medication, good safe practice requires you to have medication reviews from time to time depending on the medication you are taking.  This is important, to ensure the medication is working and to assess whether it is still appropriate for you.  Please attend your review appointment when we contact you.

Collecting and Paying for Prescriptions

All prescriptions must be paid for on collection unless you can provide an exemption certificate or a pre-payment card.  It is important that you complete the back of the prescription correctly. Patients between the ages of 16-60 will automatically be asked whether they pay for their prescriptions.  For those patients who are exempt of prescription charges you must bring evidence of your exemption with you.  All patients or their representatives will be asked to sign for the prescriptions they are collecting. Please note the dispensary is not manned in the afternoons. Please speak to a receptionist instead if you require a dispensed prescription.

 

Medication Delivery Service

 

 

As part of our dispensing services we can offer a home delivery service.  If you have difficulties collecting your prescriptions then please contact us on 01302 710326.

 

 

Unused Medicines

Dispensing patients are invited to return any unused medication to the Dispensary for safe disposal.
