Electronic Prescribing Service


From 25th April this Practice will start to send Prescriptions electronically. This service gives you the option to 'nominate' the place you choose to get your medication or appliance from so that they can receive your prescriptions electronically. Please click here for more information.



Dispensary Service


The Dispensary is based at Coltishall Surgery. It is open from 8.30-6.00pm Mon-Friday.


The Dispensary service is available to all patients who live further than one mile from a Pharmacy. If you live within a mile of a Pharmacy you must use a pharmacy service rather than the Surgery Dispensary.

Dispensary Queries


You may phone the dispensary with queries regarding your prescription but repeat medication ordering must be ordered via the answerphone service, the collection box or online.


In an emergency, a pharmacy or chemist is able to supply medication out of hours, if you provide full details of the medication including a repeat slip or medication container with your label on it from the surgery. A charge may be payable even if you are normally exempt from paying prescription charges. If you require a prescription to be posted to you please provide us with a stamped addressed envelope.
