Requesting medication early

Requesting repeat medication early


If you find you have run out of medication earlier than the date it is next due to be requested, please contact the surgery to discuss this with the reception team.  You may need to book an appointment with the doctor to discuss your medication and the dosage.


You may need to request your medication earlier than its due date if you are going away to ensure you have enough medication to last you until your return.  Please request your medication in the normal way – online, in person or by post – providing the reason for requesting early.  The reception team will review the request and contact you if further information or an appointment with a doctor is required.


Please remember to allow 48 hours for all medication requests.  If you have any queries please speak with the reception team who will be happy to guide you.
