Urgent Medication

If you run out of your medicines outside normal opening hours and need some urgently, there are a few ways to get an emergency supply quickly, including if you're away from home.

If you already have a prescription and urgently need the medicines, try the following steps:

  • If your local pharmacy is closed, you can use the NHS pharmacy service search to find other nearby pharmacies and their opening hours. Some are open until midnight or even later, even on public holidays

The surgery also has a pharmacy out of hours, on call rota on display in the waiting room and window which you may want to make a note of when you visit the surgery.

 

If you would prefer to speak to someone first, call NHS 111 free of charge by dialling 111 on your mobile or landline. The person you speak to will also be able to look up an out-of-hours pharmacy or service in your area for you. 

 

If you don't have a prescription

If you run out of prescription medicines and you don’t have a prescription with you, you may be able to get an emergency supply without a prescription from a pharmacy. It's a good idea to take along your medicine's packaging with you, if you have kept it.

GPs and walk-in centres

 

  • You can also use the service search to find your nearest NHS walk-in centre, which can sometimes dispense medicines after a consultation.

 

If you don't have a prescription

If you run out of prescription medicines and you don’t have a prescription with you, you may be able to get an emergency supply without a prescription from a pharmacy. It's a good idea to take along your medicine's packaging with you, if you have kept it.
