The surgery has its own dispensary and under current legislation is permitted to dispense medications to patients who live more than a mile from any chemist, i.e. outside of Mere.
The dispensary is open during normal surgery hours.
Our dispensers are NVQ2 trained but a doctor always checks the medication before it is given out.
Prescriptions can be ordered in the usual ways and are usually ready for collection 48 hours later.
We do keep a stock of common medications in the dispensary but if medication has to be ordered in for you we receive a daily delivery from our wholesaler. This means that most items can be obtained for the next working day. Occasionally items are out of stock or take a little longer to obtain so it is always important to try to order your medication in plenty of time.
