How to obtain medicines in an emergency
If you need your medication urgently and we are open please call the surgery and discuss your situation with one of the dispensary team.
You may be able to get your medicine or a prescription in one of the following ways:
- seeing a local GP and asking for a prescription. Staff at an NHS walk-in centre may be able to arrange for you to see a GP
- asking a local pharmacist if they can provide an emergency supply of your medicine
- in some cases, a nurse at an NHS walk-in centre may be able to supply your medicine or a prescription
- outside normal GP hours, you may be able to get a prescription from an out-of-hours service or by calling 111
