The dispensary does not accept prescription requests via the telephone. Your prescription will be ready for collection two working days after you have requested it.
However if you ask for a drug which is not on repeat prescription Please allow three days as your request will need to be passed to your GP as a prescription query who will need to check your notes etc before issuing a prescription. You can not order medication that is not on repeat online.
Drug delivery Service
The Friends of Fairford & Lechlade Communities Charity run a drug delivery service for elderly patients living more than two miles from the practice, whose medication is dispensed by the practice.
Medicines away from home
If you run out of your medication when you are on holiday or while you are away from home, there are a few ways you can get an emergency supply.
Please visit www.nhs.uk for more information.
We are a Dispensing practice, which means that we can dispense medicines directly from the surgery to patients who live more than a mile from a retail Pharmacist. This effectively means that we are able to dispense to those patients who live in the villages outside Fairford or Lechlade.
The Fairford retail pharmacist (Boots) collects prescriptions from the practice each morning.
