Collection of Prescriptions
Please do not order Prescriptions from Pharmacies before placing your request with the Surgery.
The Surgery will not provide Prescriptions to Pharmacies for medication that has not previously been prescribed or medication that has not been prescribed in the last six months. The Surgery is not obliged to do this under current regulations. The Surgery will not issue Prescriptions to Pharmacies for medication which is not due.
Only in exceptional circumstances will we telephone or Prescriptions to Pharmacies.
The Surery does not deal with telephone queries about Prescriptions from Pharmacies. Pharmacies must fax the Surgery with any queries which will be dealt with within 24 hours.
Early mornings and early afternoons are busy times in the Surgery we ask Patients to collect Prescriptions outside of these hours. Prescriptions not collected within 1 month are destroyed and recorded in the Patients record.
