OK I admit it was my fault - I forgot to order my repeat prescription but can't help thinking this is unnecessarily complicated.
I realised today that I will actually run out of medication on Thursday. I rang my local surgery to ask if I could call in to collect a prescription either today or tomorrow (bearing in mind I would not need to see a doctor or nurse).
I was told if I wanted it today they would have to forward the request to the practice head office (in the next town) as it would be classed as an emergency prescription. If I wanted to collect it tomorrow they would make the request but couldn't guarantee it would be ready tomorrow.
All my medical records are at the practice I contacted (as well as being on computer) and all that is needed is for someone to run off a prescription form and get a doctor (any doctor) to sign it.
As my medication is not for a life threatening disease I have decided to order online (as I usually do) and collect the medication from the chemist on Friday or Saturday
