We are not issuing medicines in advance of due date

Please note that we are not issuing medicines in advance of their due date as this might create a shortage or reduce the availability of medicines.

There are not currently any concerns nationally about the supply, or future availability, of medicines. If you request prescription items early, we will send a prescription electronically to your nominated pharmacy, BUT this will be dated to be available when your next medication is due. It will not be available straight away.

We trust that you understand the need to avoid stockpiling medicines which will cause problems for everyone.
