Non-urgent advice: Please allow 2 working days for us to turn around your prescription.
This is in addition to any time your pharmacy may take to dispense the medication.
The reason your prescription request takes so long is we run safety checks every time you order to ensure there are no interactions, that you are on the correct treatment for your condition and that you are up to date with required monitoring blood tests for the medicines you take.
All prescriptions are now sent electronically to your chosen pharmacy. Please inform reception which chemist you would like us to send your prescriptions to. Nominating a pharmacy means we can send your prescription directly to the pharmacy saving you a trip to the surgery and helping us become a Greener practice.
