Emergency Prescription Requests

Emergency Prescription Requests

Emergency prescription requests are requests for medication which you need within 1 working day to prevent you becoming severely unwell.

If you need an emergency supply of your medication, contact the Prescription Clerk on 01325 347247 between 2:00pm and 4:00pm (Monday to Thursday) or 01325 380640 on a Friday. The Prescription Clerk will take your request and after consultation with the GP on call, will endeavour to have your prescription ready for collection before closure of the Practice that day.

Emergency medications include:

  • Epileptic medication
  • Insulin
  • Inhalers for lung conditions
  • Emergency contraception
  • Epipen for anaphylaxis

Emergency prescription requests are NOT requests for medication which have been ordered late. You should allow 2 working days for routine repeat prescription requests. Please respect our staff, as it is your responsibility to ensure that your repeat prescription request is ordered in plenty of time.
