Emergency supply of prescription medicines

We care about our patients.

As your local community pharmacy, we have a duty of care to our patients. We can supply prescription-only medicine (POMs) without a prescription if one of our patients is in urgent need of the medicine or if a prescriber recommends their patient to us.

The medicine that you require must have been prescribed by a health care professional registered in the UK; a doctor, independent prescriber, dentist or medical practitioner. There are a series of conditions that must be met before the medication can be supplied. We will conduct a consultation to the supply of your medication fulfils the category of an emergency supply.

Is the service free?

Note, this is a private service that isn’t funded by the NHS. The cost will vary depending on the medicine and the amount that is required. We can refuse an emergency supply if your need isn’t really necessary or serious. In such cases, we will provide you with advice on how to access medical care, or we may refer you to another pharmacy or local GP. Call or visit one of our pharmacies for more details.
