Quicker Check-in For Your Appointment

After the success of the self check-in machine at The Health Centre (BOA), we are pleased to inform you that now have installed a self check-in machine at the Winsley Health Centre.

The new facility will enable patients to check-in quicker - especially if there is a queue at the reception desk.

 Winsley Dispensary

We are a Dispensing Practice with our dispensary based at Winsley.  Dispensing doctors are GPs who are allowed to both prescribe and dispense prescription-only medicines to certain patients.  Community Pharmacies (Chemists) are often not financially viable in rural areas, which is why some GPs have been allowed to dispense medicines themselves.  The system is tightly controlled and we are only allowed to dispense for registered patients who live more than 1 mile/1.6km from a Community Pharmacy (as the crow flies).  If you are not sure whether you are eligible for dispensing, just ask at reception.

Your prescription or medication will be available within two working days unless suppliers are short of stock.  If you are collecting medication or prescriptions for others or collecting certain medicines, the receptionists may ask for proof of identity. Where prescription payment exemption applies, proof of this and completion of the back of the prescription will be required.

You can collect medication from 0830 to 1300 and 1400 to 1800, Monday to Friday.  However you may be eligible for our free delivery service for dispensing medications (excluding refrigerated items and controlled drugs).  This service is for patients who have severe difficulty getting to the dispensary to collect their medicines.  Please ask at Winsley reception for more details.

If you need medication urgently or need your medicines early due to holidays please speak to a receptionist so that she can process your request appropriately.

The dispensary is able to offer a service of providing weekly medication compliance trays (Nomads), or dosettes as they commonly referred to. These are for patients who have difficulty in remembering to take their medication. Please speak to the dispensary for further information.

Please note we are unable to take prescription requests over the phone.
