Dispensing

pillsWe are able to dispense medicines to all our patients who live more than one mile from a chemist. Staff are not authorised to dispense any item without a valid prescription.

Opening Times

The dispensaries at both East Harling and Kenninghall are open daily during surgery hours, but closed for lunch between 12.30 pm and 1.30 pm. On a Wednesday Kenninghall dispensary closes at 1 pm.

Repeat Prescriptions

Patients on regular medication do not always need to see the doctor to obtain a repeat prescription. The receptionist will advise you if an appointment is to be arranged with either a doctor or nurse for a medication review. You will be issued with a slip attached to your prescription, which should be marked with your requirements and returned to the Surgery, when you are ready to re-order your medication.

Alternatively you can telephone East Harling Surgery (01953 718571) between the hours of 10.30 am to 12.30 pm or Kenninghall (01953 887208) after 10.00 am until close or, if you have signed up for EMIS Access, please return to the home screen and click the link at the bottom of the page.

It is current Practice policy to provide one month's supply of long-term medication, though individual cases may vary. If you enclose a self-addressed envelope we will post your prescription to you (this could take longer than two days).

REMEMBER to allow TWO FULL WORKING DAYS before collecting your prescription.

Any unwanted medication may be brought to either dispensary in that they may be safely disposed of.
