URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS

Requests for urgent prescriptions put a great strain on the everyday running of the surgery. We understand that sometimes patients forget to order medication but there is some medication that can be bought from your local pharmacy or that it is safe for you to miss while we process a standard prescription request.

We WILL NOT issue an urgent prescription for the following items:

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION - this can be purchased from a local pharmacy

CREAMS AND EMOLLIENTS

STATIN MEDICATION

THYROXINE MEDICATION

ERECTILE DIFUNCTION MEDICATION

SUPPLIMENTS inc Calcium and Vitamin D and Iron tablets

ANTACIDS inc Ranitidine, Omeprazole, Gaviscon and Peptac

IBS MEDICATION inc mebeverine and loperamide

Please be aware that we are often unable to process urgent requests for medication that has been initiated by hospital and not issued at the surgery yet. Please allow more time for these prescriptions to be issued.
