Please order your medicaiton via the NHS App or ring the dispensary line on 01460 55300 (option 2). The dispensary line is open Mon - Fri, 9.00 - 12.00 and 14.00 - 17.00. Please allow 72 hours, excluding weekends and Bank Holidays, for your request to be processed. Alternatively, you can drop the repeat prescription slip into the surgery, ticking the items you need on the right-hand section of your previous prescription form. Your prescription will be ready for collection 72 hours later.
You may also request repeats online. To register for this free service, simply call or come into the surgery and ask about being set up on Patient Access/the NHS App. Please note that prescriptions ordered online will not be received by the medical centre until the next working day and will then take 72 hours to be processed.
When you register with the practice you will be advised whether we will be able to dispense your medication for you at the surgery – this is dependent on the distance your home is from the nearest pharmacy.
If you require repeat medication urgently outside our opening hours, you can go to any pharmacy – the local pharmacies are The Minster Pharmacy, Silver Street, Ilminster and Boots Pharmacy, East Street, Ilminster. For more information on this, please click here. Use the NHS pharmacy service search to find other nearby pharmacies and their opening hours – some are open until midnight or later, even on public holidays.
We are keen to ensure that patients with ongoing medical problems are monitored regularly. If the date for your next review with a doctor or nurse has passed you may be asked to make an appointment.
