Emergency Prescription Requests

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.

If you require an emergency supply of your medication, you should first ask your pharmacist as they should be able to provide you a 3 day supply of your urgent medication without requiring a prescription. This should also give you enough time to receive a prescription from us.

Emergency prescription requests cannot be used for medication which has been ordered late. You should allow up to 2 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.
