Urgent Prescription Requests

 

We will be changing the way we process on the day/urgent prescription requests from 31st August 2020.

 

We are often asked to raise these urgently, often at very short notice, due to patients failing to order in advance. This impacts greatly on our workload because each repeat prescription request has to be checked personally by us to ensure it is safe to issue. If you ask us to do a repeat prescription on the same day it means that it has to be handled separately from the normal requests, and this means we have to take time out of our schedule to check it. Doing it this way increases the chances of a mistake being made and also can also lead to appointments times running late. Asking us to do a prescription on the same day is, in effect, jumping the queue. You may think ‘but it’s just one prescription’, but we have over 13,000 patients and can have many requests per day.

 

At the time of writing, we are seeing an increasing number of “same day requests.” We feel this is not safe and so have changed our rules regarding medication requests.

 

From the 31st August, all requests for repeat prescriptions will be subject to our “2 working days” turnaround, to ensure safety and fairness. It is your responsibility to ensure you order your repeat prescription in plenty of time.

 

Many medications can safely be missed for a few days if you do run out.

There are, of course, a few medications that must not be missed (such as Insulin and anti-epileptic drugs), and if you run out of one of these, then please explain this to our staff when you ring. We will issue such prescriptions as a one-off on the day in the first instance, but you will be asked to ensure you do not run out again and will be directed to this message on our website.

 

Please respect our staff if they explain this new process to you – they are working under instruction from the doctors and we are all doing our best to ensure safety of all our patients.

 

Thank you for your understanding.
