Christmas Drug Orders

Just a quick reminder that it might be worth getting your repeat scripts in now to cover the Christmas period. I have just done all mine I put a note on saying ordering early for Christmas and there was no problem getting all my families repeats early. I did the same for all my sub cut supplies I am now happy I can easily get through to the 1st week in January without needing any worry.

    Just sent my reapeat off early bout 30 mins ago but didnt put request early for christmas dont think there should be a problem though my gp is quiet good just need to go to hospital and get some soft sets needles and syringes then sorted xx

  • Good plan Bex. For routine stuff like inhalers, etc, there shouldn't be a problem if you run out over Christmas - GP surgeries will open on the 27th & 28th December as usual, and the out of hours services will still be operating - but, if you have special orders such as the sub cut supplies make sure you have plenty, as suppliers have a nasty habit of taking holidays for a couple of weeks at times like this!

  • Also, make sure you order enough of the lesser prescribed drugs ( Like my IV ventolin!) and let the chemist know the day you have ordered it to start the ball rolling their end too!


  • My lot now keep bricanly when I pick up my script they order more. This saves me the trouble of having a locum pharmacist who orders the 1ml ampules and supplies me with 3 days worth!
