Be prepared – order repeat prescriptions today

Remember to get repeat prescriptions orders in to ensure you have the right medicines to see you through the Easter bank holiday weekend. 

Ordering and collecting new prescriptions can take several days. So, if you or someone you care for requires medicines regularly, please make sure you order and collect repeat prescriptions in good time to ensure you or your family have enough medicine to last over the Easter weekend.

And don’t forget to stock up on essential medicines so you can treat minor illnesses and injuries at home such as pain relief (paracetamol), cough and cold remedies and upset stomach treatment.

Visit www.nhs.uk for further advice on general health and wellbeing.
