Dispensing doctors

With prescribing decisions around unlicensed medicines under increasing scrutiny, we understand the need to dispense specials can fluctuate from month to month.

When the clinical need for a special arises, no matter how infrequent, the onus is on dispensing doctors to marry cost, speed and quality of service.

We know ordering specials isn't something you do every day and that the endorsing process creates another layer of administration for your team. That's why we do everything possible to simplify the sourcing of specials and the paperwork that goes with it.


A 'one stop shop' where you can order unlicensed medicines and hard-to-source obtains in one phone call or email


We're open from 8am till 10pm (6pm on Fridays). So when your surgery is open late, we are too.
