Emergency prescription requests are requests for medication which you have run out of and need, to prevent you becoming severely unwell. Emergency medications include; antiepileptic medication, insulin, inhalers and adrenaline pens for anaphylaxis.
Emergency prescription requests cannot be used for medication which has been ordered late. You should allow up to 3 working days for routine repeat prescription requests. Please respect our staff, as it is your responsibility to ensure that your repeat prescription request is ordered in plenty of time.
Your pharmacist can also give you a 3 day emergency supply of your repeat medication without a prescription, so please consider this option too.
