Dispensary & Home Delivery Service

Do you live in a surrounding village?

Patients who live more than one mile from a pharmacy are able to collect their medication from the practice dispensary rather than an independant pharmacy. Our dispensary are also able to provide dossett boxes for eligible patients. 

Our Dispensary also operates a monthly Home Delivery Service. If you would like to find out more, contact the dispensary through the surgery on 01869 249333. 

The dispensary is open from 08:30-18:00 Monday-Friday, and you (or your nominated person) can collect your prescriptions any any point during these times. 


How Do I Request A Prescription?

Repeat Prescriptions:

You can reorder your regular prescriptions using one of the three options below:

  • Via Patient Access or using the NHS App - you will need to register to use this service if you haven't already. 
  • By contacting your nominated pharmacy. 
  • By posting the re-order slip to the surgery. 

Please do not call the surgery to request a repeat prescription. We cannot process prescription requests over the phone.

Please allow at least 2 working days for your prescription to be processed. This may be longer if you want your prescription sent to a chemist. If you are due for a medication review, one of our prescribers will want to speak to you before reissuing and this may cause delay. 


One-off Medication:

If you think you need medication that you don't have on your repeat medications, you will need to send an eConsult for your GP to review. 


This practice is not able to provide comprehensive NHS services for adults with ADHD.

National guidance expects longterm involvement of specialists in reviewing these patients and their medical treatment, but this does not currently happen in Oxfordshire.

Therefore the practice has taken the difficult decision that any new requests from specialists, both NHS and private, to prescribe ADHD medications to adult patients, will be declined. We will also be making this clear to providers of ADHD services, at the point we refer patients for a diagnostic assessment. Care of adults already receiving ADHD treatments remains under careful review. Patients may be able to access the care they need outside of the NHS, for instance by seeking a referral to a private provider from their NHS GP or NHS specialist. As your NHS GP, we will not enter into “shared care” arrangements with private providers.

Patients should not be left without the care they need, due to a lack of comprehensive NHS funding, and our local representatives have raised this issue with local funding and decision-making groups. If you also wish to raise this issue, you may want to contact the “planned care team” at BOB ICB, , and/or your MP.

Electronic Prescribing Service

This practice is set up for the electronic prescribing 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. For dispensing patients (those living outside of a 1 mile radius of a pharmacy), your prescriptions will still be dispensed from Dispensary. 

More information can be found on our Electronic Prescribing Service page. 


Prescription Fees

View the costs of prescriptions on the NHS website

If you have to pay for four or more prescription items in three months, or more than 15 items in 12 months, you may find it cheaper to buy a Prescriptions Prepayment Certificate (PPC).
