If you are a patient who has their medication dispensed from our Dispensary in Tavistock and you have trouble in coming into the Surgery to collect your medication, we can now deliver your medication direct to your door.

If you are not a patient who has their medication dispensed by us BUT you live more than a mile from a Pharmacy you would be able to take advantage of this service. If this applies to you and you would like to change and let us dispense your medication to you please let us know and we will deliver it for you now!!


From Monday 17th September we will be undertaking some major building works in order to improve the services we offer you.

This will take approximately six months and will involve major disruption in our car park and for a period of time a temporary entrance.

This means our car park will ONLY be available to disabled patients, patients with severe walking difficulties, taxi drop-off and those patients just collecting their medication from our Dispensary.

We would ask that all other patients please either park in Plymouth Road or The Bedford Car Park and then cross over to the Surgery.

Thank you in advance for your kind understanding.
