Medication Requests

Please do not order your medication early. We have a practice policy not to issue medication early except in very exceptional circumstances. Ordering early or stockpiling of medication is not safe or helpful.

Please ignore any messages that you may have received encouraging you to order early and citing covid-19 disruption. We appreciate that the rising number of coronavirus cases may lead to increased concern but the drug supply chain is fully capable of maintaining adequate supplies as long as people do not abuse the system.

We respectfully request that you continue to take your prescribed medication and only order a new supply when you are down to your last 7 days.

Please do not telephone the practice or call at the health centre regarding this message.
