The Carradale Surgery is a dispensing practice. This means that medicines can usually be given to you at the time of consultation. Occasionally a prescription will be issued which can be redeemed at a pharmacy shop in Campbeltown or Tarbert.
Repeat medication should be requested by either telephoning the surgery on (01583) 431376 during reception hours or completing a re-order slip and posting this in the surgery letter box or handing it into reception. You can also email prescription requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Medicines can then be collected from the Carradale Surgery during normal opening hours, or from Skipness Village Hall or Post Office on a Wednesday. Requests received before 10:00 are normally ready the next working day. Those received after 10:00 take longer. Please re-order your medication in good time before you run out.
Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
