Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see either a doctor, or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications.
For medications on repeat you need to allow 3 full working days
For all other medication requests you need to allow up to five (5) working days.
If you have run out of your repeat medication, we will be able to provide you with a 7 day emergency supply, with the rest of the repeat available to you after 3 full working days. The emergency supply will be available after a GP has finished their clinic and reviewed your meds.
