Prescription Waiting Times

The continuing impact of the COVID pandemic is putting all healthcare providers under pressure and this includes our pharmacies.

We have been advised by our local pharmacists (Back, Boots and KJ Macdonald) that the time taken to fill prescriptions can now be up to 7 days.

What if I need something urgently?

Should you require an item urgently please let our reception staff know (01851 703145) and they will arrange for your prescription to be filled as quickly as possible.

If you have a GP appointment and your GP wishes you to have a prescription item urgently, he/she will arrange this for you.

As always, should you have any questions or concerns, please phone our Reception Team on 01851 703145 and they will be happy to help you.

Thank you for your patience.
