Local pharmacy workload

Posted by: jdock - Posted on:

Our local pharmacies have reported a very high workload currently due to the closure of the pharmacy at Lloyds Sainsburys. We already ask for 2 working days’ notice for prescriptions to be processed within the practice, but currently it would be appreciated if patients were able to allow extra time due to the workload of the pharmacies.

4-6 working days ahead of your prescription running out is ideal notice.

The pharmacies have reassured us though that they are able to prioritise any urgent requests.
