Noticeboard

Chulmeigh Dispensary Opening Hours from 23.3.20

Due to staff shortages and increased medication requests, the dispensary opening hours for the collection of prescriptions at our Chulmleigh site will reduce to:

Monday to Friday - 9am to 12pm and 2pm to 5pm.

This will help the staff to work through the high volume of incoming medication requests and queries.

Dispensary Update - 26/03/2020 15.30

Medication Supply Issues

Our medication suppliers are experiencing on-going staff shortages which have impacted on our medicine deliveries. Currently only partial orders are arriving.

The practice would like to encourage those patients who do not take advantage of our monthly ordering system to use this, and order their next month’s supply at the time they collect their medication, we will then arrange a collection date in 28 day’s time for you. This enables the dispensing team to order your medication in advance; allowing the supplier’s adequate time to fulfil our order during this time.

 We thank you for your support and understanding
