With the Easter weekend fast approaching, local health experts are advising patients not to leave it too late to order and collect their repeat prescriptions.



As many GP practices will have limited opening hours over the Easter Holidays, patients are advised not to leave it too late to order any repeat prescriptions they may need over the Bank Holiday weekend. If you have asked your local pharmacy to order your repeat medicines on your behalf, ensure you contact them to tell them exactly what you need.

Paul Clarke, local
Pharmaceutical Advisor at NHS Swindon Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), said: “Many people with long term conditions rely on their prescribed medication to help them keep their condition under control. With GP practices closed over the Bank Holidays, now is a good time to double check you have enough medicine to see you through the Bank Holiday weekend, and if you need to order more, do this in good time so that you can get on with enjoying the holiday in good health.

"And don't forget that pharmacies can provide useful advice and deal with minor ailments without you having to see your GP about seasonal bugs like coughs, colds, sore throats, stomach upsets and flu."

Now is also a good time to double check that home medicine cabinets are well stocked with over-the-counter remedies so that minor illnesses and injuries can be managed at home.
