What If I Run Out Of Medication?

An emergency prescription will be made available if you find you have run out of medication. Bring your medication bottle or computer slip to reception – a telephone consultation may not be necessary, however you may be required to return at a later time in order for the prescription to be processed.

Please do your best to ensure you do not run out of medication. Evidence shows that most prescribing errors occur when prescriptions are requested as emergencies. Safe prescribing is of the utmost importance to us and although we will do our best to supply a prescription as soon as possible we have to ensure that errors are kept to an absolute minimum. You may therefore have to return to the surgery to collect the emergency prescription.
