Don't run out of essential medicines this Christmas

Don't run out of essential medicines this Christmas

We would like to remind patients and carers to get their repeat prescriptions in plenty of time before the Christmas period. With Christmas fast approaching, please ensure you order and collect your repeat prescriptions before Christmas eve (24th December).

If you take daily prescription medicines please take five minutes to check whether you have sufficient supplies for the Bank Holiday period. If not, please get your repeat prescription the week before Christmas, not the day before the holiday.

Feeling unwell? Visit your local pharmacist

If you feeling unwell and need advice visit your pharmacy. Information about where to find a community pharmacy over the Christmas Holiday can be found here or by calling NHS 111, the 24 hour health helpline.

For further information on how to help yourself and your family this Christmas Holiday please visit www.nhs.uk/Livewell/Pharmacy/Pages/Yourpharmacy.aspx
