IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING THE DISPENSING SERVICE

As you are aware, our clinical services have had to reduce over the past fifteen months due to COVID-19 and our GP services at Earls Barton Surgery, have been delivered by Albany House Medical Centre, who have been acting as Care Takers over the past year.

Following a review of services, a decision has been made by NHS England to close the dispensary service at Earls Barton Surgery, with the last operating day being on Wednesday 30th November 2022.

We are currently offering a very limited service and not all medicines may be available. Please speak to a member of the dispensary team who will be happy to help and advice.
