Some important information about prescriptions requests at this time:
Please do not stockpile medication or put in very early requests - there is absolutely no need. Monthly prescriptions should continue as normal. Excess purchasing or stockpiling of medicines can impact adversely on the supply chain and will result in shortages.
You cannot request prescriptions over the telephone.
If you currently collect you paper prescription from the surgery, then please give us a nominated chemist to send the prescription to electronically. We want to stop all unnecessary visits to the surgery.
You can request prescriptions online, using Patient Access if you are signed up to it.
We have also set up a new email address for prescription requests. This is ONLY for prescription requests. Please provide your brief details, what medication you need, and details of your nominated chemist if you have not given us this already: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your pharmacy might be able to order prescriptions on your behalf, but they may find this difficult at the moment. Please help the pharmacies to cope with this situation, by not stockpiling or ordering early!
