If you collect your medication from us please allow us a full three working days. If you collect your paper prescription from us please allow a full 3 working days to prepare this. If you order your medication after 5.30pm it will not be dealt with until the next working day, please also make allowances for weekends and bank holidays. You may order your prescription up to a week in advance, we may allow you to order earlier in special circumstances eg if you are going on holiday, you need to mention this when ordering. Please do not worry if it takes you a few days to pick up your medication, it will still be here waiting for you.
If you register with a local chemist they will provide a repeat medication service and they will then have your medicines ready for you. Please allow us two full working days after you order them from the practice to prepare and send your request. It would be helpful if you are able to allow a little longer. Please check with the chemist as to when you can pick up your medication. They will also bring your prescription request to the surgery for you.
A generic drug is the same as a brand-name drug in dosage, safety, strength, quality, the way it works, the way it is taken and the way it should be used.
This Practice may dispense you a generic medication rather than a particular brand. This will mean that your usual medication may look slightly different or be in slightly different packaging on occasions. Your medication will continue to work in exactly the same way as before.
