Introducing our 24-hour prescription collection service...

Here for your convenience, in the heart of Morpeth. 24/7, 365.

Wellway Pharmacy Morpeth's brand new, state-of-the-art 24-hour prescription collection service has been operating since March 2020. In the bid for our local, independent community pharmacy to be at the forefront of the latest technological innovations and advances to benefit our patients, this service allows its users to collect their prescriptions from our exterior collection point any time; day or night, every day of the year. With the capacity to store upwards of 300 prescriptions in our collection point at any one time, we hope to provide a flexible, accomodating and simple way for the people of Morpeth and the North East to access their medicines through us.

Easily know when your prescription is ready.

With our new service, you can simply order your prescriptions as normal through your General Practice. When we receive them electronically from them, we will immediately set about preparing them. The preparation of your prescription is tracked, and once your prescription is ready for collection, you will receive an SMS text message to notify you that your prescription is ready. Your text message will contain a code that must be used at the collection point to access your medicines.

Avoid the queues. Come at a time that suits you.

Our collection point is prominently located at the front of our building, in the heart of Morpeth, and is accessible all day, every day. Allowing 24/7 access to the collection point grants you as a patient the ultimate flexibility to collect your medicines when it suits you.
