Prescription Collection: Uppingham Surgery

For patients of Uppingham Surgery who need their medications to be collected and delivered to them please note the following.

The dispensary team at the surgery are operating the following system:

1: Please order directly with dispensary as usual (phone, online etc) – in the morning

2: Email or phone 07825 697841 (a message can be left) the medicines that you require. Please do this the same day by the afternoon.

3:  The surgery currently requires 72 working hours from time of ordering to dispensing turnaround: please see table below

4. A volunteer will deliver the medicines by first ringing your doorbell, leaving the the medicines on the doorstep and wait at least 2 metres (6 Feet) away to see that you collect them.

      Rutland County Council have made the same arrangements for all the surgeries in Rutland.
      They have asked that requests for medication are made through a coordinator. We are not aware that the surgeries are delivering automatically
      Empingham will most likely be the same as Uppingham; medications are ordered in the usual way and the coordinator is contacted: for North Luffenham residents email or phone 07825 697841 (a message can be left) for the medicines that you require.
      There may be some differences between Uppingham and Empingham Surgeries and we will try and find out and post.
      The surgeries want as fewer visits to them as possible and have asked that one volunteer collects for a number of people.
