This practice has a dispensary and provides a dispensing service to all patients living in the surrounding villages as well as all temporary residents.
Medication needs re-authorising every 12 months, if you are unable to re-order your medication please call the surgery as an appointment is not always needed to re-authorise.
All unused medication should be returned to the Pharmacy it was dispensed from.
