BUZZ US is a confidential text messaging service for young people in North Yorkshire aged 11-18. The service allows young people the opportunity to message a wellbeing worker for support, signposting information or advice around mental health and wellbeing. Some of the main reasons young people text BUZZ US are around: anxiety, bullying, self-harm, eating problems, self-esteem and stress. Young people can text 07520 631168, a wellbeing worker is on duty Monday-Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-4.30pm (excluding bank holidays). Outside of these hours, a bounce back text will be sent, signposting young people to emergency services and CAMHS crisis if they need immediate support in the meantime. We aim to reply to all messages within one working day; however this service is not for young people in crisis.

West Ayton

The dispensary is open on weekdays between 08:30 and 18:30.

For patients on regular treatment the doctor may allow monthly repeat prescriptions. A list of medication that you can order without a consultation will be printed for you each time you collect any medication or prescription. If the date at the bottom of this list has passed you should make an appointment before ordering any more medication.

Repeat prescriptions can be ordered:

  • by ringing (01723) 864553 stating your name, address and the names of the medicines required. Please note you can leave your request on the answerphone 24 hours a day.
  • by ticking the boxes on your repeat prescription list and handing it in to Ayton or Seamer surgery. 
  • For non-dispensing patients please specify if you will collect your prescription from the surgery or which pharmacist you would like your prescription sending to. 
  • Online – via the link at the top of this page.

To use the online facility you will need to request a pin number and password from the surgery. If you already use this system for booking appointments online you use the same username and password.

Please allow a MINIUM OF 3 FULL WORKING DAYS before collection either from the Surgery or by prior arrangement to go to the Seamer Stores (delivery at 15:00 each weekday) or Seamer Surgery (Monday, Wednesday and Friday only). 

Please note: We would prefer patients to collect their medication during the week when the dispensary is open. Saturdays are only for patients who cannot get there during the week. 

Please take particular care not to run out of tablets at the weekend or holiday time, by ringing well in advance.

Policy about quantities 

With a small number of exceptions, such as contraception & hormone replacement therapy, we prescribe ongoing medication in 28 day amounts, which has been shown to reduce wastage for the NHS (this is common practice). Patients who are not exempt from prescription charges should consider purchasing a pre-payment certificate if they are on 2 or more regular prescriptions.

Free Delivery Service 

If you normally have your medication dispensed by the surgery we can deliver it to you free of charge. Medication will need to be ordered at least 2 days in advance and colostomy products and dressings will need to be ordered 3 days in advance in order to take advantage of this service. 
The delivery day for Snainton prescriptions is Thursday afternoon. 

The delivery day for West Ayton prescriptions is Wednesday afternoon. 

Please ask at the dispensary for more details.

What to do if you are unsure about anything 

The dispensary staff (01723) 864553 can answer any other questions you may have.
