Run out or just about to run out of medications - Urgent Requests

Unfortunately we are receiving a high number of requests to be issued at short notice. The request turn around for repeat medications is 5 days. We appreciate that sometimes there are genuine reasons behind an urgent request and in such circumstances we do our best to uphold these. Certain medicines also need to be issued urgently. However frequent 'urgent' requests affect the smooth running of our service and take reception staff and doctors away from other duties and care. Please consider this. Some requests maybe refused by the doctor.
