  • Any patient living more than 1.6km from their nearest chemist can obtain their medicines from our dispensary at Brenchley Surgery. 
  • Other than in exceptional circumstances, we require 7 full days to fulfil repeat prescription requests. Please contact Dispensary if you need your prescription or medications more urgently. During busy periods (ie bank holidays) please make sure you give us as much notice as possible.    
  • To deal with your requests safely and efficiently please do not ask us to rush  - our staff have a strict protocol to follow and each prescription request must be reviewed by the GP before it is processed by our dispensary.
