Medication

Special arrangements e.g. delivery for repeat prescriptions to local chemists may be available, please ask our Dispensary staff for details of pre-payment certificates.  You may also arrange to collect your prescription from Blythe Bridge Surgery.

Please Note:

If you request the chemist to collect your prescription you must allow extra time as the 48 hours notice is notice to the surgery.

Should your need to have a prescription dispensed out-of-hours please ring NHS Direct, 0845 4647 and they will tell you your nearest open pharmacy.
