If you need to make an appointment notification should appear on your repeat slip. Please ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
Please allow two full working days for regular prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Patients requesting acute items (those not on regular repeat) may have to wait longer. Patients using the postal service should allow longer.
