We are receiving an increasing number of requests from patients requesting early issues/longer duration of repeat medications and requests for one off medicines which were issued in the past for a specific episode of illness.
Our practice is following guidelines from Local Medical Councils across Greater Manchester to not change repeat prescription durations or support patients trying to stockpile as we believe these actions may put a strain on the supply chain and exacerbate any potential shortages.
Please be assured that the practice will continue to ensure patients are provided with their repeat medications when due and requests for any new medications would be decided on an individual basis.
We encourage you to sign up for online access to request a telephone appointment and repeat prescriptions as soon as possible to help us continue to provide you the best possible service and help you to minimise travel and stay safe. Please telephone surgery if you are not signed up already and our care navigators will help to set you up for online access.
If you still decide to collect your prescriptions please can we request you to collect from the reception only between the hours of 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
Please stay at home were possible and stay safe
