|• Services >> NHS & Private Dispensing|
We dispense both NHS and private prescriptions.
A Pharmacist is always on duty during opening hours to supervise the dispensing of prescriptions and to offer help and advice when required.
Facilities are available for small scale manufacture of ointments, mixtures, powders etc and we are often called on to make use of these. We carry a wide range of medicines in stock. In addition we are usually able to obtain foreign products not marketed in this country for specific orders.
Our computer system can keep a record of your medication. This is useful to ensure safety and convenience when dispensing and selling medicines.
We have invested in a state of the art robotic dispensing system - to learn more about our robot and how we dispense your prescription, click here.
Emergency Supplies: Under certain circumstances (set out in the Medicines Act) we are able to make an emergency supply of a prescription only medicine. This is intended for emergencies only and is not an NHS service hence a charge will be made.
Repeat Dispensing: We offer a full repeat dispensing service. We can provide you with pre-paid reply envelopes, so that your repeat prescriptions are returned to Wicker Pharmacy for dispensing and delivery. NHS Repeat Dispensing is also available for those on stable repeat medication.Your GP will provide you with your initial prescription and also copies for future supply (of up to one year's duration). Hand in the initial prescription (and, if you want us to look after them, the future supply copies too) and we will then dispense (and deliver, if you wish) your medication for you each month.
Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions: In the near future your GP will be able to electronically transfer your prescription direct to this pharmacy. Watch this space for details!
Unwanted Medicines: Unused medicines should be returned to a pharmacy for safe destruction. Please Do Not Hoard Medicines it can prove fatal.
Please Note: Unless otherwise requested by the patient, all tablets & capsules are dispensed in "child resistant containers" - this does not mean that they are "child proof" - nothing is! So Keep All Medicines Out Of The Reach Of Children.
