dispensing pharmacist (or doctor)


Explanation:
It depends for whom the text is directed. In good old English system, "chemist" is used mostly (and wrongly) as the "drug store", or medicines'"shop".
The person who actually issues the drugs is a "dispensing (qualified) person", be him/her a pharmacist (chemist) or a proper doctor who, in England, are also allowed to "dispense" drugs.
