Welcome to Angel Lane Surgery

The Dispensary would greatly appreciate your help at this difficult time

Please do not request more than 1 month’s supply of medication at a time.  Patients that request 2 months or more will only receive 1 months’ supply.  We are not able at this time to provide any extra medication.

Please allow extra time for your prescriptions to be processed, 3 working days if possible.  Please do not contact the surgery to ask if prescriptions are ready to collect.  If you have given the appropriate time for collection then your order will be ready to collect.  The dispensary telephone line is receiving a high volume of calls from patients making enquiries; this is taking up a lot of staff’s time which is needed in preparing patients prescriptions.

Thank you
