Help, I'm nearly out of medication

Don't worry, help is at hand

1.Use the NHS APP for Repeat Prescriptions

If you have less than a week's supply, please use the NHS APP to order your prescription. It will be processed within 3 working days (Suitable for patients aged 13 or more with a smartphone)

2.Submit an econsult if you don't have a smartphone or have less than 3 days supply

Use this method if you've:

  • not had a repeat prescription for that medication yet
  • you're likely to become unwell without that medication
  • not yet registered with Patient Access

     It will be processed within 2 working days

3. Pharmacy emergency supply

If you have no supply at all your pharmacist can issue an emergency supply of 1 month, but is only authorised to do this once a year per patient.
