There are two different types of prescriptions which the doctor may choose to use.
Used by a doctor for certain types of medications that are not for regular use. A doctor may choose to put a new medication onto your records as current if they need to see how suitable the medication is for you.
Current prescriptions will not show on your repeat medication form and cannot be ordered online or over the telephone without the receptionist checking with your doctor to ensure another issue can be made.
If you need to reorder a current or new medication please allow an extra amount of time for the medication to be ready for collection.

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.
Please allow 48 working hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Any problems please telephone the surgery.
