You can collect your signed prescription from the Surgery 2 working days (48 hours) after you have submitted it.
If you have difficulty in collecting your prescription from the Surgery there are other ways...
You may request that a named chemist collects your prescription from us and then you can pick up the medication from them. You will need to ask for your prescription a few days earlier than usual if you use this method and you must make it clear which chemist you want your prescription to go to.
You can also request that your Pharmacist receives your prescription via the Electronic Prescribing Service (EPS). This means that when your prescription is issued it will be sent electronically to the pharmacy of your choice. You will need to register with your pharmacy to use this service.
If, however, the next time you request a prescription, you change your mind please remember to amend your instructions for the collection of your prescription!
Please note that the collection service is for the prescription only, you will still need to arrange to collect your medication from the chemist - we are not a dispensing Surgery.
If you are unwell, the Chemist may well deliver to you - please ask your chosen Chemist.
