Pharmacies

There are six pharmacies in Witney itself.. The local pharmacies are:-

Sainsburys are open till 23.00 every evening except Sundays, when they are open from 10.00 – 16.00. All collect prescriptions at least once daily from us.

The local pharmacies offer a free prescription collection service to save you from making a special trip to the health centre. Please ask at them about this.

You must nominate a local pharmacy where you will collect your prescription when you make your request. We no longer allow collection of prescriptions at the practice unless issued on that day by the duty doctor.

If you are on regular treatment authorised by your doctor (i.e. listed on the right-hand side of your prescription) and you need a further supply of medication, there are several ways you can do this. You can:

  • Leave your computer slip with your preferred chemist (see below)
  • Make your request online
  • Post your request to us here at the health centre
  • Bring your request into the surgery

We will provide your pharmacy with a repeat prescription within 3 working days of receiving your request. You will receive a printout with a list of the drugs available to you without seeing the doctor.

If you do not require more of all your medicines, please indicate clearly the ones you require. Please remember to request a further supply before you run out.

We do not accept prescription requests by telephone as drug names can be difficult to hear clearly and this can be very dangerous.

We usually prescribe generically which means that we use the name of the drug rather than the name of the Company which made it, (Paracetamol rather than Panadol). Generic prescribing saves the NHS money without affecting your care.
