Prescriptions

We are asking patients to make sure they have enough of their repeat prescriptions to last them over the Christmas period when the surgery is closed.

Services will be busy as always over the Bank Holiday, making sure we all have got prescriptions in time will help reduce demand and allow out of hours and emergency services to focus on providing care rather than issuing prescriptions.

As well as arranging repeat prescriptions, patients are also being urged to only visit A&E or call 999 in a medical emergency or life-threatening condition.

For medical advice or to access the GP out of hours service contact NHS 111 who will direct you to the right service.  NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and is free to call from landlines and mobile phones. For everyday ailments, you can visit a local pharmacist for advice on treating minor conditions.

If you do though run out or lose medicines over the bank holiday, you may not need to wait for an out of hour’s doctor to write you a prescription. Five days’ supply of most medicines can be issued by your community pharmacist at weekends when your doctor’s surgery is closed.

If you do not pay for your prescriptions this service is free of charge. To give you an “emergency supply” of your medicines, we need you to come to the pharmacy in person. It is helpful if you bring an empty medicine box or a repeat prescription request form with you. Unfortunately “controlled drugs” which include strong analgesics and some sleeping tablets, are not included in the scheme.
