Dispensing Doctors

In rural areas ‘dispensing doctors’ such as Great Staughton Surgery can dispense to patients who live more than 1 mile from the nearest chemist. Other patients can either collect a prescription and take it to a chemist of their choice, or nominate a chemist, such as Lt Paxton Pharmacy or Boots in St Neots, where scripts can be sent electronically.

If you run out of medication, our dispensary team will do their best to help, however we are unable to stock all medication. If we cannot supply you ourselves, the dispensers can ask doctors to sign a prescription for you to take to a chemist.
