Dispensing to Rural Patients
We are a dispensing practice, which means that we are authorised by NHS England to dispense prescribed items to our rural patients who live more than one mile away (as the crow flies) from a pharmacy/chemist.
Our dispensary for rural patients is conveniently located within the main surgery building.
If you are a patient we dispense to then we are also, in certain circumstances, able to offer a delivery service where we can drop your medication off to you at home. Please ask our Dispensary team for more details.
The Dispensary is open Monday to Friday between 08:30 to 18:00. It is closed at weekends and on bank holidays.
If you have any queries regarding your medication, please contact the surgery on 01271 323 443, our Healthcare Administration Team will log a call for you with the Dispensing Team and they will aim to call you back within 2-3 hours. You can also contact our Dispensary Team via email to order your repeat medication or if you have any questions about your medication, you do not need to be a dispensing patient to contact them. Please ensure you include your full name, DOB and address so we can identify you. The email address is: D-CCG.LitchdonDispensary@nhs.net
Collecting Control Drugs
If anyone is coming to collect prescribed controlled drugs from the surgery either for themselves or on behalf of someone else they will need to adhere to the legal requirement of bringing photo ID of the person collecting them. They will also need to be collected before 12pm or after 2pm.
