If you or someone you care for is on regular medication, make sure you know how much medication you have left and plan in advance when you need to order more to avoid a last minute panic.
It’s important to place orders seven days in advance to allow enough time for the pharmacy to assess, make sure they have the right medicines in stock and safely dispense.
If you take medicine regularly you’ll usually have a repeat prescription. This means you can order your medicine when you need it without having to see a GP until your next medicine review.
You might be able to ask your pharmacy for your medicine if your GP has set this up.
Otherwise please remember that you do not need to call your GP practice every time – you can order a repeat prescription by using the NHS app or NHS website.Find our more about the NHS App
