COLLECTION OF PRESCRIPTIONS
- Either collect your prescription yourself or send in an adult representative. Be prepared to identify yourself in some way to the receptionist e.g. giving your address or date of birth as well as your name. You must supply your agent with evidence of authority to collect on your behalf.
- Local pharmacists will deliver medication but this is a service designed for those who cannot get out and about, or have no one to collect a prescription for them. It is not meant for those who find it merely awkward to get to the surgery and abuse of this system can delay delivery of medication to those most in need. Patients must arrange delivery service themselves with the pharmacy of their choice. Also, any delivery problems should be sorted out with the pharmacy, as delivery is not the responsibility of the practice.
- Patients should also be aware that the processing time is still 48 hours from when the pharmacy hands in the request to us.
Please try to avoid busy times when collecting your prescription.
