Due to the increasing demand on repeat and acute prescriptions we must insist on 24 hours notice on all prescriptions as it is impossible to safely prescribe medication at short notice. This is in the interest of patient safety. We would ask that you do not ring the surgery to check if your prescription is ready before 24 hours has passed.
