NHS & Private Prescriptions
Allisons Chemist dispense both NHS and private prescriptions.
A Pharmacist is always on duty during opening hours to supervise the dispensing of prescriptions and to offer help and advice when required. Private prescriptions are charged according to the ingredient cost. From experience we know that our prices are competitive, so please call for a quote if you would like to know what your prescription will cost.
Our computer system can keep a record of your medication. This is useful to ensure safety and convenience when dispensing and selling medicines.
As part of the process of refitting the shop after the Cockermouth floods in November 2009, we invested in a state of the art robotic dispensing system, which is located upstairs. We hope that this will help us to keep up with the changing demands of pharmacy, and allow us to spend more time serving our patients.
Electronic Transfer of Prescriptions
Castlegate Surgery can already transmit prescriptions to us electronically and we expect Derwent House to follow suit in the not too distant future. We have been ready for this service for a long time and patients who already use it are finding that they receive their prescriptions much quicker and with less hassle.
If you would like to take advantage of this service and have your prescription dispensed at Allisons when your surgery is ready, please pop in and register with us.
Unused medicines should be returned to a pharmacy for safe destruction.
