Acute prescriptions are medication that has been started and will require monitoring by the GP to determine whether or not you need to stay on this long term - this medication will not appear on your prescription re-order form. Your GP may in due course switch this over to repeat medication if appropriate.
Therefore, it may take longer than five working days to action your acute medication request - this is because your GP may require more time to review this particular type of prescription.
Please allow sufficient time when requesting your medication. We would recommend five working days to allow us to process your request.
Same Day Prescription Requests
We are unable to process same day prescription requests. By law all prescriptions must be reviewed and signed by a doctor, to ensure that medication is accurately and appropriately prescribed.
Please allow five full working days for prescriptions to be processed and remember to take weekends and bank holidays into account. Patients using the postal service should allow longer.
