Emergency Supply of Prescription Only Medicine
Without a prescription.
***NEW COVID 19 PANDEMIC LEGISLATION***
In an urgent situation, your pharmacist can make an emergency supply of certain prescription only medicines.
No prescription or authorisation is required from your G.P.
, however you must pay privately for the medicine.
***Recent “Emergency Supply Legislation” has come into being to provide relief during the current pandemic.
This legislation gives your community pharmacist new powers, in an emergency, enabling supply of certain (prescription only) medications free of charge (on the NHS), if for some reason a prescription cannot be obtained in time from your GP in the usual way.
