Prescription Medications during CORVID 19 crisis Prescription Medications Many GP's are now asking people to order prescriptions through a prescription telephone line or through an online order system. They are also asking people to pick a pharmacy, and then the person can get the prescription from the pharmacy. Most pharmacies are now implementing Social Distancing procedures, and that can mean only 1 or up to 3 people in the shop at any one time. This is obviously adding to wait times If you have medication to order or collect, please do this as soon as possible, and plan to be able to wait. You may want to do this before you use your last medication, so that you have time for the order process. The process between ordering with your GP and collecting from pharmacy takes in excess of 48 hrs. This time line may get longer.
