Ipplepen Health Centre Dispensary

At Ipplepen we are fortunate to have an in-house prescription dispensary which can dispense your medication if you do not live within 1.6km of a pharmacy. The dispensary keeps a stock of most commonly prescribed medications. Less common items can usually be obtained within 24 hours. Please take your prescription to the hatch by the front door and if you are able to wait this will be made up for you normally within 10 minutes. Please use the in-house Dispensary so we can retain this vitally important service for the residents in our rural communities. Repeat prescriptions can be collected during opening hours but remember we close for training, development and audit work 1pm-3pm on Thursdays.
