The Dispensary

Penryn Surgery is a Dispensing Doctor’s practice. This means we are able to provide prescribed medications to our dispensing patients at Penryn, Stithians and Mawnan surgeries.

Dispensing facilities are available for most patients who live more than ONE mile (1.6km) from a chemist. You will be advised of your eligibility when you register as a patient or if you change address.

Dispensaries can only supply medication from a prescription; we cannot provide over the counter medicines or items.



If you live more than one mile from a pharmacy, you can apply to have your medicines delivered to:

MABE Post Office

RAME Stores


MYLOR Stores



Our driver delivers to these sites once a day, Monday to Friday, (not including Bank Holidays).

In addition, a HOME delivery service is available for patients who are housebound. Further information is available from the Dispensary on request.

If you are interested in this service, please ask at the dispensary at either Penryn, Mawnan or Stithians for a delivery application form.

If you pay for your prescriptions or are exempt for paying, we will need payment or evidence of your exemption in advance of delivery.



If you have any problems, queries or difficulties, a dispenser will be available to offer advice or assistance. Please contact the Dispensary through the usual surgery number.


If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact the Dispensary; if our trained and experienced dispensers are unable to help with your query, they will speak to the appropriate person to resolve your query.
