It is always best to put in an order for any medication you take regularly a week before you run out, as repeat prescriptions can take three or four working days to process.

Paula Wilkinson, Chief Pharmacist at Mid Essex Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “It’s worth making sure that you only tick the items you require if you take more than one medicine. Using electronic repeat prescriptions is an easy way to help you do this – if you are not already registered for the service, just speak to your GP practice.”

In an emergency, pharmacies can sometimes issue a medicine you need without a prescription. Take along an old prescription or the medicine's packaging if you can to help the pharmacist.

If you can’t get to a pharmacy, there are still a number of ways you might get urgent help. For general information about options available to you when your usual pharmacy is closed, visit the NHS website at bit.ly/2Gm1LlX. You can also call NHS111 free of charge.
