Fleggburgh Surgery provides a dispensary that enables all eligible patients (patients living 1 mile or more away from a Pharmacy) to collect all medications prescribed by the GP.

The dispensary is closed 13:00-14:00.

We are part of the Medicine Support Services Link to provide medicine dosette boxes.

We offer a delivery service for patients who are completely housebound or who have weekly dosette boxes. Delivery is on a Friday morning.

We provide dressings and medications prescribed by the district nurses.

We undertake reviews of patients medication compliance. If you have been advised by the surgery that your review is due, please use our Medication Review form.

Collection Points

Patients can either collect their prescription from the surgery or a chemist of their choice.

If you live within 1 mile of the surgery you can collect your prescription from the surgery.

In order for prescriptions to be collected from a chemist, patients need to register for the Electronic Prescription Service.

Good Medication Management is Important

Please preempt ordering prescriptions to avoid medication running out.

If you are given 56 days of tablets and you have 7 days left, order your new prescription. In the case of any emergency your regular pharmacist will give you a couple of tablets until you get your new prescription.

It is good practice that repeat medication is regularly reviewed so that you get optimum care.

If you are going on holiday you should take a list of your medication with you.

If you have elderly relatives ensure that they have an adequate supply of their medication. Dosette boxes/blister packs can be arranged if they have a large amount of medication to take.

Useful Information

Each drug has two names – the generic and the brand name. Where possible we use the generic name because this is usually much cheaper for the health service. Due to this, you may notice a change in colour, shape or size of your drug. Do not be concerned by this, you are still receiving the same drug of the same quality, it is only the appearance that has altered.

Please request your medications review appointment at least 10 days before your medication runs out.
