Heathfield High Street Surgery Dispensary

We are proud to be able to offer our patients the convenience of an in-house dispensary. The dispensary is run by an enthusiastic team and there is always a dispenser and assistant available at the dispensary, that can help and advise you on any problems related to your prescriptions.

Firs Surgery Dispensary

We also have a small dispensary operating at the Firs Surgery. This is operated every weekday morning by a dispenser.


Dispensed Medication

The dispensary can issue medication for prescriptions prescribed by a doctor or nurse practitioner to the surgery’s own patients who live more than a mile from the nearest chemist. This is a health authority ruling and it is not at the discretion of the doctor.

If you do not meet this criterion but believe that you have special needs that would benefit from being a dispensing patient then you may appeal to the NHS England by completing a "serious difficulty" application form. Please ask reception for this form.

To qualify for this service you must complete a Rural Dispensing Application Form for all members of your family at the time of registration.

Arrangements for patients to whom we are not allowed to dispense (i.e. those living within 1 mile of a chemists shop) can be made as follows:

  • Signed prescriptions can be collected from reception in person
  • Prescriptions can be sent to Procters Chemist at your request. Please specify whether this is to the High Street or Station Road.  Manor Pharmacy in Horam also collect from our surgeries.
  • We can post a signed prescription back to you if you supply an SAE with your request
