Travelling with Controlled Drugs
Before you go, check any rules and restrictions in that destination with the embassy.
Go to www.gov.uk/government/publications/foreign-embassies-in-the-uk
In general, if your medicine contains a drug listed as schedule 2, 3 or 4 on the controlled drug list, you need to either;
If required your GP can provide you with a letter to travel with but please be aware this is not an NHS service and there is a £30 charge for providing this.
Beating the DRUM for patients' medicines
As part of our dispensing service we offer a Dispensing Review of Use of Medicines (DRUM) to some of our patients.
This review is a face–to–face meeting with one of our dispensers, and is an opportunity better to understand your medicines and their uses. You may be invited for a review when you collect your medicines.
This is an extra service that we offer and not a replacement for seeing the doctor or the nurse so you should still come along for your regular appointments.
Chip and PIN Machine
We have a Chip and PIN machine in reception for patients who would like to pay for their prescriptions or other services by credit or debit card.
