 Monday - Friday, 9:00 - 13:00 and 15:00 - 18:00 (the pharmacy is currently closed for an extra hour between 2 til 3 to help process the extra demand created by the coronavirus outbreak)



Contact 111 to find out which of the other local pharmacies are open.


The doctors extended the building and added a pharmacy to the surgery in 2000. It is a separate business to Quantock Vale Surgery, owned by Lydeard Care Limited.

The Pharmacy is run by Simon Powell, Superintendent Pharmacist and his team of dispensers. The Pharmacy has an Information Leaflet which gives details of the services offered, the opening times and where to find information when the Pharmacy is closed. The leaflet is available from The Pharmacy.

When you receive a prescription from your doctor, you are not obliged to take it to the Bishops Lydeard Pharmacy. Most patients find it convenient to do so, but if you would prefer to take it to another pharmacy, when you order your repeat prescription at the surgery, please tell the prescriptions receptionist and she will leave it at reception for you to collect.

Please allow sufficient time for your medication to be dispensed.  We will take your prescription into the Pharmacy for you but Simon may need to order in the medication, so he needs an additional one working day to dispense it. You may be surprised to learn that the Pharmacy dispenses about 7500 items a month, or 325 items a day. With such a high number of prescriptions being dispensed, please accept that you may have to wait for your medications when you come in to collect them.
