NHS Wiltshire asks patients to plan ahead and order their repeat prescriptions before Christmas
Many GP practices and pharmacies will have limited opening hours between Christmas and New Year, so Wiltshire Clinical Commissioning Group is reminding patients to plan ahead to ensure they have enough medication to last over the festive break.
Ordering and collecting new prescriptions can take several days, which is why patients are being urged to plan ahead. Prescriptions can be ordered by patients visiting, or phoning their pharmacy or GP practice, with some practices offering a quick and easy online ordering system.
Seven Wiltshire practices also use the Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service, which allows patients to order their repeat prescriptions over the phone then collect them from a pharmacy.
- Lovemead Group Practice
- Giffords Surgery
- Castle Practice
- White Horse Health Centre
- Avenue Surgery
- Tinkers Lane Surgery
- New Court Surgery
