Prescribing and Dispensing

boxes of pills

We carry a wide range of drugs for immediate use, and will usually be able to supply what you need at the time if you become unwell. However, repeat dispensing for long term conditions is done by Sutherland's in Kirkwall. Drugs are delivered to the surgery three times a week for you to pick up. The doctor delivers drugs to the Outdoor Centre in Hoy at 1000 on the second and fourth Friday of each month. The whole process of ordering, dispensing and delivery takes about 5 days so please order your repeat medications a week in advance to make sure that you don't run out.

Covid-19 has forced us to prevent easy access to the Health Centre. When you want to pick up your medication call ahead and you will find it waiting for you on the table in the foyer. Simple! The IOHDT has funded a delivery van so, if you are housebound your medication can be delivered to your door

Ordering repeat medication

You can reorder by logging in to Patient Services. This will show you a list of your current repeat presciptions from which you can pick what you need. 

Alternatively you can:

  • tick the drugs you need on the prescription re-order form and drop it off at the surgery.
  • telephone reception on 701209 and order what you need.
  • email us with your order.
