Dispensary Services

At the main surgery located in Bow, we have an onsite dispensary. This is not a pharmacy and therefore we do not sell over the counter products. The dispensary team, who are skilled and trained dispensers, offer our patients the opportunity to collect medication from the practice without the need to visit a pharmacy, we aim to offer a convenient and friendly service to our patient community.

If your medication is not ready for you to collect when you call, we will happily get it ready for you whilst you wait. You can wait in the dispensary, or if you prefer can take a seat in our spacious waiting room and catch up with the practice news on our waiting room TV.
