Urgent Prescriptions

If you have run out of your medication for any reason, we will try our best to issue your prescription more urgently.

If you require an urgent prescription, you should contact the practice on 01253 344544, ideally in the morning. Our phone lines open at 8am (except from bank holidays).

It is important to understand that our team will work very hard to help you with these urgent requests, but sometimes it is not always possible. This may be because of affecting factors, such as public demand, time, unavailability of patient contact when requested, etc.

We ask that all patients will order on-time, allowing for 2 full working days for your order to be processed, using our ordering methods. To learn more on how to order your repeat prescriptions, click here.

When the practice is closed, you can use NHS 111 to request a limited emergency supply of medicine you have completely run out of.

This must be a medicine you are prescribed regularly, through a repeat prescription. You will be charged your usual prescription fee. If you do not usually pay, it will be free.

You can not use this service to request antibiotics, treatment for new symptoms or controlled drugs which require identification to collect.
