Pharmacy

Our Sturminster Newton branch supports a well stocked pharmacy which is run by our stock manager. We are constantly trying to achieve the best possible prices for the drugs we supply by working closely with our drug manufacturers. We have the advantage of a daily delivery from our wholesalers which allows for prompt availability of drugs not commonly kept in stock.

It is requested that drug orders are phoned through to the surgery prior to collection to enable us to authorise and dispense items, helping us to minimise waiting times.

Orders can also be collected from our Blandford or Shaftesbury branches upon request. These branches do not hold the same levels of stock so less common drugs will need to be ordered in for the following day.
