Remember that the Christmas holiday period lasts for 4 days including the weekend this year. It is an extra busy time of the year for all of our staff especially in the dispensary. We have put some new measures in place this year to cover the ordering of repeat medication.
If you would like your medication before 24th December we MUST have received your request before 3.00pm on 21st December. If you would like your medication, on or before 31st December we MUST have received your request before 3.00pm on 23rd December.
You may be asked to take your prescription to a pharmacy if an urgent requests arrives at short notice and we do not have your item in stock. This is due to our suppliers who also close over the Christmas period and is out of our control.
