Urgent requests for medication

Posted by: rebeccaknowles - Posted on:

Due to an increased number of requests for urgent prescriptions we would encourage patients to order their repeat medication 7 days before they run out. This allows time for both the surgery and the pharmacy to process the request. These requests are very time consuming as they interrupt the working of an already busy duty doctor trying to deal with urgent medical conditions. For more information go to the ‘Repeat Prescription’ section on our website or visit https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/how-to-order-a-repeat-prescription/
