Prescription ordering update – March 2022

We would like to announce 2 changes to our prescription ordering which will come into effect from the 18th April 2022.

  • From the 18th April all prescription requests will take a minimum of 72 hours (3 working days excluding weekends)
  • From the 18th April any prescription requests which are received after 3pm will not be looked at until the next day.

It is with regret that these 2 changes must be put into place however due to staff shortages they are unavoidable at this time.

We would encourage all of our patients to request their medication 3-5 days before they run out to give the practice plenty of time to ensure the prescription is issued and with your chemist.
