Marazion Surgery Dispensary - Update

Save our Dispensary – Good News!

We were absolutely delighted to hear the excellent news that General Practices would continue to be allowed to dispense medications. The Minister of State in the Department of Health Phil Hope MP said in the House of Commons on Tuesday 16 December:

“We are analysing the responses to the consultation on pharmaceutical provision in England, and we will be making an announcement on these wider issues as soon as possible in the new year."

"I am aware of the strength of the responses we received on the various options for amending the criteria for dispensing by doctors. We have taken into account the views of those attending the listening events, the meetings and so on, and as a result I am pleased to announce to him that there will be no change to the current arrangements on GPs dispensing medicines to their patients.”

We wished to share this good news with you, and also take this opportunity to thank you, your committee members and all members of the public for your support and encouragement during this worrying consultation period.

We wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and Happy Healthy New Year,

Yours sincerely

Mrs Jackie Brown
Practice Manager
On behalf of Drs Hamilton, Walden, Thacker, Killeen & Sugrue
