Arrangements can be made with the local chemist,  South Brent Pharmacy,  to collect your prescriptions. By using this service you can contact them and ask for them to order your regular medication. You can then collect your medication from the Pharmacy after 3 working days (This allows for delivery and collection of your request to the Health Centre).   Please note that if you request a specific pharmacy this will be added to your medication notes so that all your prescriptions are forwarded to them.

This practice is able to send your prescription electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.  If you usually come into the Health Centre to collect your prescription you can now nominate a preferred pharmacy and we will be able to send the prescription directly to them electronically which can save you time,  Please speak to reception for more details.
