Reminder to order repeat prescription in time for Easter

Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB) is reminding people to order their repeat prescription early if they are due ahead of the Easter Bank Holidays to ensure they receive essential medication in time.

GP practices and community pharmacies across Carmarthenshire, Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire will have reduced opening hours over the Bank Holidays, making it more challenging for patients to access medicines at short notice.

Professor Christopher Brown, Clinical Director of Pharmacy and Medicines Management for Hywel Dda UHB advises people get their repeat prescription as soon as possible.

He said: “Over the Bank Holiday weekends it may take longer than usual to process your repeat prescription, and have it dispensed.

“Using emergency or urgent services to access planned medication puts added pressure on already busy services.

“If you take medication regularly and are due a repeat prescription, please get it in early to your GP as this will help your GP practice and pharmacy to have your prescription ready in time for you.”
