Lost or forgotten medicines – pharmacies in the the local area may be able to obtain your prescription in various ways. Call ahead to check they can – but there is no need to attend a GP Practice.

  1. (England registered patients only) For patients on electronic repeat dispensing it is possible for a pharmacy to retrieve an active prescription token once patient demographic data is collected and consent received.
  2. (England registered patients only) The patient’s GP practice can direct an electronic prescription to any pharmacy. This would normally be requested by the patient through their normal method.
  3. (UK Registered patients only) The patient’s GP can fax, email or telephone a prescription to any pharmacy but this is considered an Emergency Supply at request of a GP and the original prescription MUST be supplied within 72 hours.
  4. (UK registered patients only) The pharmacy can make an emergency supply at the request of the patient (with some limitations). This must normally be funded either by the patient.
