Collection of Prescriptions containing controlled drugs

Updated on 14th April 2014 at 7:33 am



Due the nature of these items we have to adhere to strict policies regarding the issuing and collection of these. As a result of this it can take dispensary staff time to ensure these procedures are followed.

For this reason we would advise that it is best to avoid busy surgery times and try to collect between 10am and 3.30pm as much as possible.

If you send a relative or a friend to collect your controlled drug prescription we ask that they are over 16, bring both some form of identification and that we have authorisation from you, stating they can collect for you, this can be scanned onto your records and would not be asked for again.
