ELM Group – Benefits to dispensing patients

If you live more than a mile from the nearest chemist, you are able to benefit from having your medicines supplied direct from Elm Group. You are not under any obligation to have your medicines dispensed from our surgery, but we believe there are many benefits from doing so.

1) If your doctor or nurse issues a prescription during your consultation at Sutton Bonington, you will be able to have it filled within a few minutes from the dispensary hatch in the waiting room, rather than having to walk or drive to the chemist.
2) For repeat prescriptions we anticipate there will be less room for error and confusion if we dispense these on site.
3) Prescriptions occasionally seem to go missing en route to the chemist and there is often confusion about items ordered. These situations will be easier to overcome in our own dispensary.
