We offer a dispensing service for patients who live more than a mile from a chemist or we can send this to a chemist for you. It is our policy to dispense or prescribe one month’s supply of medication at a time.
The Consultant Pharmacist in Public Health recommends this policy for Northumberland Care Trust and is supported by the Department of Health.
We offer a home delivery service for patients who may struggle to collect from surgery.
Repeat prescriptions take 72 hours to process.
