You may be aware that pharmacies have historically been able to provide patients with an emergency supply of medication. We have been informed that from 1 April 2023 pharmacies will no longer be able to do this unless patients have been referred by 111. Please try to order your prescriptions a few days before they are due - we ask for 48 hours to process requests but are able to process them much more quickly if they are ordered via the NHS app.
