Dispensing

Arran Medical Group can dispense medication to patients who do not live near to one of the community pharmacies.  Those who live in or near to Brodick, Lamlash and Whiting Bay are served by a community pharmacy.

Dispensing from the Practice enables certain patients to collect their medication from one of our surgeries, when the journey time to a pharmacy would be prohibitive.

Note: We are finding that an increasing number of drugs are suddenly unavailable .  When this occurs, your GP needs to make alternative arrangements in conjunction with the Pharmacist: this can take longer to sort out.  This issue has attracted increasing concern nationally – see this link to more information.  We apologise in advance if this causes any inconvenience.
