The surgeries can dispense to all patients that live 1 mile away from the nearest chemist, which is Rowlands in Kington High Street. Prescriptions issued during your consultation can be dispensed while you wait. If you live within 1 mile of the nearest chemist, then you will be issued with the prescription for you to take to a chemist. You can take your prescription to any chemist.
When ordering repeat medication you must give at least 3 working days notice.
Ordering your Repeat Medication
To order your repeat medication you need to do one of the following:
Fill out the repeat request slip that comes with your prescription and hand it into the dispensary at Kington. There are allocated ‘repeat prescription’ boxes situated at the surgery so that you do not have to wait to hand your request to a member of staff. Alternatively, if you collect your medication from the chemist in Kington then you can take your request form to them. If you have not got a request form then you can write down your request, making sure we have your name, address, date of birth, name of the medication and where you would like to collect your medication from.
We do not accept repeat prescription request over the telephone.
All prescriptions must be paid for when collected unless a valid exemption certificate is produced. It is possible to pay for a ‘season ticket’ called a pre-payment if you have several prescriptions. Please ask a member of the dispensary team about this as it can work out more cost effective for you.
