This service can be used when a patient needs an urgent prescription for a supply of their normal prescribed medicines when these have run out.
Instead of going to the Out of Hours GP service or hospital Emergency department, the patient can go to a Community Pharmacy and collect their medicines. The usual prescription fees or exemption from fees will apply.
Patients on holiday and temporary residents can also use this service both in hours and out of hours - to save having to make an appointment to see a GP locally where they are staying.
Pharmacies are obliged to inform the patient’s GP surgery of the prescriptions within 7 days.
The nearest participating pharmacy is Dudley Taylor Pharmacy, Chipping Campden High Street, Tel 01386 840251.
