Village Collection Points
You can arrange to collect your medicines direct from the dispensary at the surgery or you can have them delivered to your nearest delivery point where they can be collected at your convenience.
There are collection points at Thornham:
- Thornham – The Drove
- Docking Mini-Supermarket
This is a delivery and collection service manned entirely by volunteers.
The repeat prescription form contains a date for your medication review.
We review any regular medication on a repeat prescription annually and wherever possible the doctor will do this without you having to attend the surgery.
If you have been advised by the surgery that your review is due, please use our Medication Review form.
Electronic Prescribing Service
This practice is set up for the electronic prescription service.
This means that for most patients we can send your prescription to your chosen chemist directly saving you having to come down to the surgery.
