Shap Medical Practice is a dispensing practice. This is a great convenience for patients who are able to collect medicines at the time of seeing the doctor or nurse. However, we are not allowed to dispense to patients whose home address is within 1 mile of a chemist, nor are we allowed to sell medicines that may otherwise be available without a prescription.
We try to keep a stock of our most commonly used medicines at all times, but at periods of unexpected demand or when there are delivery problems, we may run low on some items. We receive a delivery from our supplier every weekday, so items that are not in stock can usually be acquired with 48 hours.
