Prescriptions for repeat items are computerised. When you collect your prescription you will receive a tear-off slip listing your medication. Please allow 48 hours to process. You may give consent for a chemist of your choice to collect your prescription on your behalf, which can be arranged by yourself with your personal pharmacist.
We would like to confirm that our working days for processing prescriptions are Monday from 8.30 am to Friday evening at 6.30 pm.
Therefore, any repeat prescription ordered over the weekend or evenings will not be processed until these start times and the period of processing of the prescription will start from this time.
Please ensure that you leave enough time for this process to take.
