As you can request your medication up to 7 days before running out we hope that you should not find yourself in this situation. However, if you have run out or have less than two working days supply remaining then we as your Surgery will try to help where we can, but due to the volume of medication requests we receive daily it is highly probable you may still have to wait.
If your medication is on the NHS urgent list (please see below) and you have clearly marked your request as URGENT then we will endeavour to issue the relevant medication within one working day. Should we not be able to do due to your request coming in late in the day or close to the weekend then we would advise you contact NHS 111 to discuss your request.
There are certain medications that you may take or use on an ‘as and when needed’ basis. This can mean they move into your past medication list on our records. Please still request using one of the methods above BUT include the reason why you need the medication at this time. We will then send your request onto the GP and await their decision. We will always contact you should there be an issue.
