Important changes to Long Crendon and Brill surgery opening times

Changes to Long Crendon surgery

Due to staffing shortages and concerns about our ability to manage social isolation/infection control in the building, we have taken the difficult decision to immediately close the Long Crendon surgery during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will be open every morning (Monday to Friday) for collection of medication only, and to take telephone calls.

From 1pm we will be closed – please call our surgeries in Thame (01844 212553) or Brill (01844 238284) for assistance.

To protect yourselves and our staff, please ensure strict social distancing of 2 metres or more when collecting your medication.

Changes to Brill dispensary hours from Monday 30th March

Unfortunately, due to staffing shortages and the unprecedented volume of prescriptions we are currently processing, we have had to make the decision to reduce the opening times of Brill dispensary.

From Monday 30th March, the dispensary will be open from 10am – 1pm and 2pm – 6pm.

This is to allow our dispensers to have 2.5hrs where they can work uninterrupted, in order to manage the increased workload and to endeavour to keep to the 4 days’ turnaround from ordering to collection. Many community pharmacies have also restricted their opening hours for the same reasons.

To protect yourselves and our staff, please ensure strict social distancing of 2 metres or more when collecting your medication.

Note: Brill surgery normally closes on Thursday afternoon; however, due to the recent closure of our Long Crendon site every afternoon, we will be keeping Brill surgery open all day on a Thursday, until further notice. Dispensary hours will be as above.
