Difference between dispensary & pharmacy

You can usually obtain medicines from the dispensary if you live more than a mile ("as the crow flies") from a chemist, you are a temporary resident or you are unable to get to a chemist shop easily.  Ask at the dispensary for details.

The pharmacy located at each surgery is owned and run by a company called  H M McParland Ltd who operate in a similar way to any other pharmacy on the high street.

The Dispensaries are a department within the practice in the same way that reception, the secretaries and nursing team are – all working under the direction of the GPs.
