PRESCRIPTION PROCESSING TIMES
CHRISTMAS 2019 PRESCRIPTION ORDERING DEADLINES
ORDER BY MONDAY 16TH DECEMBER
COLLECT ON TUESDAY 24TH DECEMBER
ORDER BY MONDAY 12RD DECEMBER
COLLECT ON TUESDAY 31ST DECEMBER
Under normal circumstances, medication will be ready to collect at the pharmacy 4 WORKING DAYS after you have ordered your prescription. This does not include Saturday and Sunday when GP surgeries are closed. In times of high demand such as bank holidays, this timescale may be extended to 7 days.
WE THEREFORE SUGGEST THAT YOU ORDER YOUR MEDICATION NO LATER THAN 7 DAYS BEFORE YOU REQUIRE IT
The best way to order your prescription is by downloading the NHS app onto your smartphone. We urge all patients to use this ordering method as it gives transparency to the prescription process. It also frees up both GP reception staff so they can be free to make patient appointments and pharmacy staff to be able to dispense medication.
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can register with your GP surgery to gain online access to be able to order your prescription.
Please do use the feedback facility to let us know how we can improve any of our services.
