Please allow two working days for the dispenser to prepare your prescription whenever possible. This is because of the rural nature of the practice and occasional difficulty in obtaining supplies. Please allow more time if you post your request.

Be prepared to receive reminders to see the Doctor or Nurse to check your condition and drug requirements from time to time.

Please do NOT telephone for repeat prescriptions as this blocks the telephone line for patients seeking appointments and visits.

If you have difficulty in collecting your prescription at any time, please tell the dispenser.

If you have regualr medications and have been stable on them for a number of months please ask dispensary about the 'yellow box' which is designed to make ordering your repeat scripts easier.

Please remember you will be required to pay a charge for your prescription, unless exempt. If you are exempt for any reason please show your exemption certificate. If you would like information on those exempt from prescription charges please ask the dispenser.
