Response to article in May edition of Stanton Steamer regarding pharmacy application

Stanton Surgery Pharmacy Application - The Facts

Stanton Surgery’s Pharmacy Application – the Facts

The practice would like to correct some inaccurate statements made in this month’s Stanton Steamer by stating the following facts:

• The practice has made an application to open a pharmacy

• The purpose of making this application is to protect the dispensing service at Stanton Surgery from compulsorily having to cease if a corporate pharmacy chain or independent pharmacy makes a successful application to open in the village

• If the application is successful, patients of Ixworth, Botesdale and Woolpit surgeries who live in Stanton will still be able to obtain their medication from their own practice

• This is because all three of the other surgeries have already made successful applications to run their own pharmacies from their own premises

• If the application is successful, patients will not notice any change in the way their medication is dispensed from the surgery

• If the application is unsuccessful, dispensing services at Stanton Surgery will be protected from corporate or independent pharmacies opening for the next five years

Prescription Delivery Service Launch

Our new prescription delivery service from the Stanton surgery for all registered patients has been launched. We are able to deliver to collection points at the post office in Hopton, Barningham and Garboldisham. If you feel that you may be eligible for this service our Dispensary staff will be able to advise you - 01359 253701

As a Practice, we are always aiming to ensure we provide the best possible services for our patients.


To help us do this, we have a group of patients who we occasionally contact, usually by email, to ask general questions about how the Practice is doing and about any improvements we could make. We really value the comments and suggestions that they provide.


All patients aged 18 and over can be members of the Patient Participation Group.


If you would like to join, and have a regular opportunity to comment on how we provide services to you, please contact Rob Freeman (Practice Manager) on 01359 251192 or email Your contact details will be kept safely and securely and will only be used for this purpose and not shared with anyone else. We will keep contact to a minimum.
