Oakfields Health Centre is a dispensing practice. This means that we are able to dispense medication directly to our patients who live more than 1 mile from a community pharmacist/chemist. Please ask at reception is you think you might be eligible and would like to know more about this service.
If you have any queries about the medicines the doctor or nurse has prescribed for you please contact the dispensary. Please note that the Dispensary is closed every day between 12.00 - 14.00 and Dispensary phone lines are only available Monday to Friday between the times of 10:00 – 15:00, and 10:00 – 12:00 on a Thursday.
We can arrange for weekly dosette boxes to be made up for patients who have difficulty managing medication. Please ask the dispensing manager for more information.
The practice will be introducing a delivery service for dispensing patients who are housebound and unable to collect their medicines from the surgery. Please ask the dispensing team for more information.
