For many years GPs have been able to dispense medicines to their patients who live in more rural areas. The benefit to those patients is that they do not have to take their prescription to a pharmacy to collect their medicines, but can have them dispensed all in one visit from the GPs premises.
The legislation surrounding GPs dispensing only allows for GPs to dispense to their patients living more than a mile from their nearest pharmacy. This means that only about a quarter of our patients will have the benefit of this new service we are able to offer. We are able to dispense to patients living in the villages of Sutton Bonnington, Hathern, West Leake, Rempstone, Bunny, Bradmore, Long Whatton, Normanton, Willoughby-on-the-wolds, Wysall and Widmerpool.
