"Collecting prescriptions from my surgery"

Firstly let me stress how great our local GP surgery is - Lower Stondon Surgery. Always polite always kind and helpful.
But for some reason I am no longer allowed to pick up my prescription from the surgery (the window I pass outside the doctors room)
I find this very very annoying as I now have to travel down the road to a new pharmacy that doesn't always have stock of the items I need. So I then have to travel to another town by car.
Why has this changed? why am I no longer allowed to choose?
Using foot paths it's closer to walk to my surgery, if I then have to go to the pharmacy on station road this adds another 20 minutes to the walk. I dont understand how anyone can find this acceptable and how it has been allowed to dictate how and where I can collect my prescription.
After all I'm usually unwell when I visit the doctors so I would really rather collect my prescription how I choose the most convenient to me.
