Ordering Medication.

When ordering medication the dispensary needs two complete working days to process your requests.  We do not process repeats or receive deliveries from our wholesalers on Saturdays, so please follow the chart below to establish when your medication is likely to be ready.  Please remember that the collection date may vary depending on the availability of your medication from the wholesalers.

This chart includes ordering medication online.

If ordering medication through the post, please use the above chart and allow 2 extra days from the date posted.

We make deliveries Monday, Wednesday and Fridays.  If you receive your medication via delivery, please expect it on the delivery day AFTER the day your medication would be ready for collection i.e. if you order your medication on a Thursday, it will be ready for collection on the Tuesday and will therefore be delivered on the Wednesday.

Due to staff shortages, our dispensary staff, supported by the rest of the team, are working extremely hard and will endeavour to meet your needs as swiftly as possible, so please be considerate.  We thank you for your patience.

If you have any queries, please ask at reception and we will be happy to help.
