Pharmacy Urgent Repeat Medicines Service


If you run out of your routine repeat medication when the surgery is closed and you need an urgent supply, you can:


  • Telephone 111 and ask to be referred to a pharmacy that provides the urgent repeat medicines service. You will be asked to phone the pharmacy in advance and take ID and evidence of the repeat medication required when you attend.
  • Go to any pharmacy and ask if they provide the service

The pharmacy will usually only provide this service directly to the patient. In circumstances where this might not be possible (if the patient is a child or being cared for) the pharmacist will consider the best interest of the patient.


Not all medication can be supplied under this service. If the pharmacist cannot help you it may be appropriate for them to refer you to the GP out of hours service.


The urgent repeat medicines service will be available on Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holidays and after 6pm on a Friday evening.


Please do not contact the GP Out of Hours Service or go to A&E if you need routine repat medication - this service is for emergency/urgent care only.


If you are on holiday in this area and have run out of your routine repeat medication please telephone your regular surgery as they will be able to send a prescription to a local pharmacy.
