DRUG ALERT

Parkside Pharmacy

Lady_medication_babyWe are not a dispensing practice and because of the rurality of the area most of our prescriptions are dispensed by the local chemist, Parkside Pharmacy. They are located in the centre of Bellingham. If you do not want your prescription to be forwarded to Parkside Pharmacy automatically, you should advise us each time you make a request for medication.

Again because some of our patients are housebound and live in isolated areas the chemist does offer a delivery service. However they would very much appreciate it if you were able to collect where possible. We would be happy to issue your repeat medication to coincide with your trip to Bellingham.

We send most prescriptions to Parkside Pharmacy electronically, please let either the pharmacy or the practice know if you do not want us to transfer your prescription this way.  

We will encourage patients who are on regular repeat medication to go onto the "repeat dispensing scheme".  This means thae pharmacy will hold your prescription until your next review is due.  All you will need to do is let the pharmacy know when you want to pick your prescription up.  This reduces the administration time at the practice, therefore using NHS resorces more effectively.

The pharmacy telephone number is 01434 220231
