URGENT PRESCRIPTION REQUESTS
Due to the increasing numbers of patients requesting their prescriptions on an urgent basis, St David's Clinic has implemented an Urgent Prescription Policy to ensure efficient management of medication requests whilst minimising the risk of errors.
Unless urgent prescription requests are deemed as such by our pharmacist or Duty GP, requests will be processed routinely. If deemed urgent, we aim to process requests promptly but cannot guarantee same-day turnaround. A text notification will be sent once the request has been processed.
If you forget to obtain a repeat medication, contact your pharmacy for assistance under the Urgent Provision of Repeat Medication Service or call 111 for guidance.
Your local pharmacy offers services under the common ailments scheme , common ailments covered by the scheme are:
|Warts or Verrucas
