We would like to apologize to all our patients for the unacceptably slow service from the dispensary. We are aware that we have been unable to fulfil the turnaround times for repeat prescriptions that we had promised, and we are also aware that many patients have had to queue for long periods of time to collect their medication.

Please be assured that we are taking active steps to improve the dispensary and we hope to be able to provide a better service in the New Year.
