About Dispensing
Dispensing Patients
Patients living more than one mile from a pharmacy are eligible to become dispensing patients.
As a dispensing patient, your medication will always be ready to collect from the Dispensary. It will not be necessary for you to collect your prescription and take it to a pharmacy/chemist for dispensing.
In addition your doctor will be able to dispense medication to you, should you require it, on a home visit.
Non-dispensing Patients
Patients who are not eligible to have their prescription dispensed by Clitheroe Health Centre Dispensary can choose from one of the following options:

Collect their prescription from the Dispensary reception desk to take to a pharmacy for dispensing.


Arrange for a pharmacy to collect their prescription on their behalf from the Dispensary reception desk.

If you choose option 2, please note that you must contact your chosen pharmacy and arrange this with them yourself and also inform the Dispensary.


Please allow 2 full working days between ordering the prescriptions and collection.
