We are a dispensing practice. This means that patients who live in the rural areas more than a mile from a local chemist may receive their prescribed drugs from our Dispensary. Wickham Market residents are obliged to collect their medication from a Chemist. However, if you are registered as a Temporary Resident we will dispense from the Surgery.
If you are not taking some or all of the medicines that appear on your repeat prescription please inform your Doctor so your prescription can be reviewed. £4 million is wasted on unused medicines in Suffolk. If you are not taking it, please don't order it!
Dispensary Opening Times:
Monday to Friday: 8.30am to 6.30pm
Wickham Market lunchtime closure: 1pm to 2 pm
Saturday: 8.30m - 11.30am (for pre-booked appointments only). Please note, the Surgery is not generally open and the front doors will remain locked. Dispensary is not open for general repeat prescription collections.
Tuesday: 6.30pm to 8.00pm (Booked appointments only, not for general repeat prescription collections).
If you are on long term treatment, the Doctor may agree to supply some of your repeat prescriptions without seeing you. You will receive a computer printed slip showing details of your medication. Tick the items required and post, email, fax or hand it in at the Dispensary.
In the interests of accuracy and safety we DO NOT accept requests over the telephone.
Please allow two full working days for the preparation and signing of your prescription before collecting either the prescription or your medicine. If you wish us to post your prescription, please attach a stamped, addressed envelope with the request.
