Pharmacy Nominations

To help ensure that footfall to the practice remains low during the current easing of lockdown restrictions to help ensure a low level of contact, if you have NOT previously nominated a specific pharmacy we will arrange for your prescription to be available for collection at ANY pharmacy to dispense to you once you have requested any items.
