Emergency prescriptions

Emergency prescriptions should only be requested if you have run out of important medication and you are unable to wait until the next day. It will be up to the GP to decide if he/she will issue an emergency prescription.

An emergency prescription, if issued, will be ready for collection after 9am the next morning (excluding Saturdays and Sundays). Emergency prescriptions must be collected from the reception desk even if your prescription usually goes to a named chemist.
