Collecting medication from our dispensaries

To reduce the number of people queuing at then dispensary collection points, we send patients a text message when their medication is ready to collect. Please do not come to collect your medication before you receive the notification from us, as it will not be ready to collect. Our dispensaries are working to a 4 working day collection timeframe.

If you do not have a mobile phone a member of the team will call you to advise your medication is ready to collect.

The 4 days collection timeframe allows our staff to socially distance in the dispensary.

Thank you for your patience.
