AN OAKLEY pharmacy is set to install an automatic prescription dispenser.

Plans have been put forward by Dears for the 24/7 vendor, which will be located in the car park.

RM-PM, a contractor based in Burntisland, have applied for permission after working previously with Dears in refitting several of their units.

In the Dunfermline High Street branch, this has included installing a prescription locker.

It's hoped the new dispenser will help reduce wait times inside the pharmacy and allow customers to access prescriptions at their leisure.

It's outside location will also reduce COVID transmission risks.
