If you live more than a mile from a community pharmacy we are allowed to dispense your medication. Ask at the dispensary if you think you may qualify.
We have a dispensary in both Bodmin and at our branch surgery in Lewannick.
We are a dispensing practice and have a comprehensive stock of medicines at our Bodmin Surgery. We are allowed to dispense to patients who live in rural areas, or more than a mile from the chemist. If you don't qualify for this service you must take your prescription to one of the community pharmacies. Ask us about registering for our dispensing service if you think you qualify.
We are able to arrange for medication that we dispense to be collected from our branch surgery if you qualify for our dispensing service.
Occasionally we have to order an item not held in stock but we endeavour to obtain this item as promptly as possible.
If you have repeat medication we will keep a record on the computer. You will be asked to attend for a medication review at least annually.
How to get a repeat prescription - See "Prescriptions".
Tips for Using the Dispensary
- It takes 3 working days to process a prescription request and complete the order, and remember to allow extra time for bank holidays.
- IF YOU PAY for your prescriptions please remember to bring either cash, cheque book or credit or debit card to pay for them. We are unable to give you your prescription without payment so please do not put the staff in a difficult position by coming without any money.
- When you collect your prescription please check that it is correct before leaving the surgery.
