Current patients on repeat medication.
Please allow two-three working days (48-72 hours) notice for prescription processing. We will accept early requests to cover the Bank Holiday periods and also holidays- just make a note on your request slip.
If you are going on holiday please put your request in at least a week ahead and indicate on the slip that you are going away.
One off prescriptions will take longer than two working days (48 hrs) as they need to be re-authorised.
Over the Counter Products
Most common conditions such as backache, headache or cough can be treated at home and for most people they are not serious health problems. Many common conditions can be treated at home with the support of your local pharmacy if needed. Over the counter products for self-care are things like pain relief and cough and cold remedies. These items can be bought from pharmacies, supermarkets and discount stores without a prescription. You can get them without an appointment or seeing a doctor. They are also often cheaper this way. Please view our Local Support page for more information on how you can be supported.
