Dispensary

The Dispensary liaises closely with the Doctors, Pharmacists, Practice Nurses, District Nurses, Macmillan Nurses, Patient Advisors and Administrators. Dispensing facilities are available for most patients who live more than one mile from a chemist; you will be advised of your eligibility when you register as a patient.

We are operating our dispensary through the window straight into the car park, to avoid people having to enter the surgery itself and keep risks to a minimum.  

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered quickly and easily through a variety of methods, designed to suit everyone and to ensure that all patients can contact dispensary at a time and by a method that best suits their busy lives. 

Please give at least three working days notice, not including weekends.  You can request your repeat medications in the following ways:

- OUR PREFERRED OPTION:  On-Line via Patient Access:  Please register to use this efficient service.  More information on how to register and application forms are available on our website www.marazionsurgery.com or ask a dispenser.

- Royal Mail:  Prescription requests are made using the prescription counterfoil provided with each prescription.  Please clearly tick the items that are required.  This slip can be posted to the Dispensary at Marazion Surgery. Please allow additional time for Royal Mail delivery.

- Drop in a request in person, using the post box just inside the front door or outside of opening hours a post box is located by the side door, around the corner to the right of the building.

- Telephone option three during the following opening hours: Mondays to Thursdays 11.00am to 1.00pm, and 3.00pm to 5.00pm; Fridays 11.00am to 1.00pm, and 3.00pm to 4.00pm.  Please ensure you have all medication information to hand. 

Services provided by the Dispensary include:

Monthly Prescriptions: Please ensure that you do not run out of medication, by ordering your repeat prescription in plenty of time.  We require at least three working days’ notice not including weekends.  During busy periods, such as during Bank Holidays, we would appreciate being given extra time.  Please do not over-order or ‘stock up’ on medicines.  

Delivery Service: A delivery service is available to rural areas.  For more information on the delivery schedule please contact the dispensary.  Patients who are housebound will have priority for delivery.  In addition regular dropping off points are made to local shops on a weekly basis, to the villages of Goldsithney, St Erth and Crowlas.  Again, please contact dispensary for further information. 

Health Awareness:  We have a team of very experienced and fully qualified Dispensers, who can offer advice to patients and their carers, providing the patient has given their permission.  Healthy living advice is available upon request, along with a wide range of supportive literature and leaflets. The Dispensary aims to ensure that all patients receive excellent patient care, including regular check-ups and regular tests as required by the Doctor and Pharmacy Team.

Dosett Boxes:  These boxes contain medication in specially designed blister packs, making it easier for the elderly or infirm to remember to take their medication appropriately.  If you feel that you, or someone you care for, would benefit from this service, please discuss this with their doctor.  More information on the dosett boxes is available from Dispensary, but these can only be authorised by the doctor.

Queries & Questions:  If you have a query about any aspect of your medication or care, please speak to one of the Dispensary staff at the surgery.  If the Dispenser does not know the answer, they will speak to the appropriate person and get back to you within a reasonable period. 

The Dispensary Supervisor is Miss Tara Brownfield.

We accept payment by all major debit and credit cards.  We do not accept cheques.  Information about prescription fees is available from Dispensary or on our website.
