If you are housebound or have difficulty getting to the surgery we run a free delivery service three days a week for the delivery of repeat medications to your home.  Please ask the dispensary staff about this service who will be happy to help you.

Those patients for whom we are unable to dispense (those living less than one mile from a chemist) repeat prescription requests can be accepted by the receptionist at the desk or by telephoning 01327 358287 between 1030 and 1800, providing the medication has already been authorised by the doctor. Medication can be collected at a chemist of your choice in Towcester or the signed prescription can be collected from the reception desk and taken to any chemist.  Hospital prescriptions can be dispensed from our dispensary as soon as is practical, often the same day but some medications may have to be ordered in specially.  Please speak with one of our dispensers who will be able to advise you.

Emergency Supply of Medications Out-of-Hours

If you need to obtain a prescription when the surgery is closed please call NHS 111 by dialling 111. For pharmacies that are open and their opening hours consult local papers or NHS 111 for up-to-date information.
