Acute (One Off) Prescriptions
If you require a prescription for an antibiotic or other medication that is not on repeat you must telephone before 11.30. Your request will be forwarded to the GP for authorisation. Patients should give as much detail as possible about their request, including any known allergies. They should then telephone after 3.30pm to confirm a Prescription has been authorised by the GP. Please note that Doctors DO NOT always provide prescriptions, so Patients should telephone to confirm.
Patients should not ask Pharmacies to telephone the Surgery to obtain details of acute/antibiotic requests. Patients should telephone the Surgery after 3.30 to confimr that a prescripiton has been done.
We will only process emergency request for acute in the afteroon. Any acute request received after 11.30 will be placed on the next day request list.
