Prescription Ordering Wolsingham

Please note from 28 February 2021 you will no longer be able to order your repeat medication by leaving your paper prescription side slip at the pharmacy in Wolsingham.

Historically the number of patient ordering their repeat medication this way has increased significantly and it is no longer possible or practical to offer this service.

This decision has been made jointly by the Weardale Practice and the Pharmacist Richard Brown in order to ensure both services can continue to provide our patients / clients with their repeat medications safely in the future.

Alternative options available are :-

  1. Order your medication via our online service – this is quick and easy and available 24 hours 7 days a week.
  2. Ask a family member to do order online on your behalf – they do not have to be a patient of the practice or live in the local area.
  3. Sign up to automatically receive your monthly medications via this pharmacy – please contact the surgery to see if this can be arranged for you.
  4. Post your paper prescription to Stanhope Health Centre, Dales Street, Stanhope, Co-Durham, DL13 2XD – please allow at least one working week to issue your medication.

Please note we will not leave any patient without their necessary prescribed medication.  Anyone with genuine difficulties should contact the practice.
