Medication and prescriptions...and ChristmasThis timely seasonal note is from the Kennet and Avon Medical Partnership (KAMP):
In order to ensure you have enough medication for the festive period, please plan ahead and order your routine medication in plenty of time. From now until the New Year, you will be able to order your repeat medication up to two weeks early.
We guarantee that all repeat prescription requests received by 5.30 pm on Wednesday 20th December will be sent to your requested pharmacies before Christmas. If you use the KAMP dispensary (at the Marlborough site), your prescription will be ready to collect in time for Christmas.
Please remember, if you use a pharmacy, such as Boots in Pewsey, you will need to factor in the time it may take them to dispense your prescription.
Any routine requests received after Wednesday 20 December, will not be ready for collection until Wednesday 27 December.
You can order repeat medication online through the SystmOnline service, or by bringing your repeat prescriptions slip into either of the practice sites.
If you use the KAMP dispensary in Marlborough, it will be closed from: 6.30 pm on Friday, 22 December, reopening at 8.30 am on Wednesday, 27 December
and from: 6.30 pm on Friday, 29 December, reopening at 8.30 am on Tuesday, 2 January.
Thank you for your co-operation.
