Reminder to order medicines early

Have your say

With the August bank holiday approaching on Monday August 29, South West Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group is reminding patients to order their repeat prescriptions in plenty of time.

At busy times of year like bank holidays it is important that we spend a few minutes thinking about our health care by ordering and collecting any repeat prescriptions at least a week in advance as many pharmacies will be closed.

Dr Vindi Bhandal, chairman of South West Lincolnshire CCG, said: “Make sure you renew any regular prescriptions and collect medication before the holidays start as running out of daily medication over this period could have serious consequences for patients who rely on them.”
