Prescription Delivery / Collection

You can collect a repeat prescription for a friend, or relative, from the GP surgery.  You can also take a prescription to the pharmacy to collect someone else's medication for them.  They will need to fill in the relevant part of the prescription form to show you are collecting the prescription on their behalf.  If you are collecting 'controlled medication' - such as morphine and methadone - for someone else, you are legally required to show the pharmacist proof of your identity.  Many pharmacies offer a prescription collection service, which means that they will collect your prescription from your GP surgery for you and have iit dispensed and ready for you to collect from the pharmacy at a convenient time.  Also, if any of your medication needs to be ordered, the pharmacist can ensure everything is ready for you when you call in.  Some also offer a home delivery service, check with your local pharmacy for details.
