Prescriptions will be available for collection on the following basis:
Requests made before 5.00pm will be ready for collection two working days later after 2pm. For example, prescriptions requested on a Monday will be available for collection on Wednesday after 2pm. If you are calling to request a medication not on your repeat prescription, please ensure you have advised us of an up to date contact number. If the doctor requires any more information before issuing a prescription, we will call you to discuss this.
Please do not phone to confirm your prescription is ready as this blocks our telephone lines and generates a large amount of work for reception staff. Prescription requests made 10 days or more early are unlikely to be granted unless a reason is given i.e. if you need medication sooner for example due to holiday then please let us know. You may be asked to attend the surgery on occasions for a review of your medication.
You can find out more about this subject on our Prescription Requests page.
