Keele Health Centre has an on–site dispensary where patients can have their prescription dispensed if they live over 1.6 km (as the crow flies) from a pharmacy. Anyone not living over 1.6km from a pharmacy will be given a prescription to take to their local pharmacy.
If you take medication on a long–term basis, you can ask for a repeat prescription by ringing the surgery. You can also call in and ask at the dispensary. Your prescription will be available for you to pick up in two working days.
If you need a repeat prescription in an emergency please advise the dispenser, so that she can arrange for you to collect either the medication or the prescription as soon as possible. If the drug that you require is not in stock you can take the prescription to a pharmacy where they will be able to dispense it for you. If you require the "morning after pill" please ring reception and they will arrange an appointment with either the doctor or nurse urgently. If you require an emergency prescription when the surgery is closed, ring the surgery phone number, and the answer phone message will give you the emergency phone number.
