We can send your prescriptions directly to the following pharmacies:
- Craigmillar (previously Dears),
- Lindsay & Gilmour (previously Smiths),
- Boots Fort Kinnaird, Newington and Cameron Toll,
- Asda Jewel
- Lindsay & Gilmour
Once you have ordered your prescription, you simply collect it from your choosen pharmacy 2 days later.
Once you notify us about your preferred pharmacist, your prescription will always go directly to that chemist. If you want to collect your prescription at the surgery or another chemist you need to advise us of that change.
Requests can also be made by letter or in person. Letters for repeat requests should enclose a stamped addressed envelope for return. Please remember it is your responsibility to ensure you order your repeat medication on time, always allow extra time for weekends and public holidays, and also in the event of postal and/or technical problems.
When you are discharged from hospital you should normally receive five days supply of medication.
On receipt of your medication requirements, which will be issued to you by the hospital, please bring this to the surgery or post via S.A.E. before your supply of medication has run out.
Hospital requests for change of medication will be checked by the GP first, and if necessary your Doctor will issue you with a Prescription. The Practice will endeavour to issue you with your prescription on that day, but it cannot be issued until your medical details are checked by the Doctor, your prescription should normally be ready by 4pm on that day, or you may be advised to attend the next day.
The Doctors will review your medication, regularly, which may involve changes to your tablets, in accordance with current health Board policies. Please be reassured that this will not affect your treatment.
