Prescription Ordering

A minimum of three clear working days is required to process all repeat prescription requests. ‘Working days’ are classed as Monday to Friday (excluding all Bank Holidays). 

So for example, if you would like your medication to be ready on a (non-Bank Holiday) Monday afternoon, you will need to order it on Wednesday morning at the latest.
