Patients who live further than a mile from the surgery may have their medicines dispensed by the practice. If you live within a mile of the surgery you may: take your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice; leave your prescription at the surgery to be collected by the Co-op pharmacy in Wheatley, who will then dispense your medicines for you collect from them; or leave your prescription to be collected by Boots pharmacy who will deliver the medicines to your home (see Home delivery services).
It is our Practice policy to dispense one month’s supply (28 days) only of medication at each prescription repeat.
Order Repeat Prescriptions Online
Patient Access will give you a facility to send repeat medication requests to the surgery.
When our dispensary team has accessed the request it will display as accepted on your Patient Access home page. Please note that this does not mean that the prescription is ready. It merely means that the request is being processed. We still require 2 working days to process requests. Please do not send requests for any medication not on your repeat list.
To access this service you will need to be already registered with Patient Access.

Caring for Your Dental Conditions
As a practice we would like our patients to receive the best possible care. GPs have no training or qualifications in dentistry and we are therefore unable to diagnose, treat or prescribe medications for dental problems. If you are unwell and are unsure if it is due to a dental or medical problem, we are happy to see you. However, if it is found that you are suffering from a dental problem, we will not be able to offer treatment or medication and will ask that you see a dentist to have it safely and appropriately addressed.
If you do not have a registered NHS dentist or are unable to get a timely appointment, you should phone 111. They will, where appropriate, help arrange an emergency appointment with a local dentist in your area. This is also true for care outside of normal working hours.
