The Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain has issued advice to pharmacist on how to deal with requests for emergency supplies of regular medicines. The doctors go on strike this Thursday (21st of June). The key advise are:

  1. Liaise with your local GP. A clear understanding (and agreement) of when referral is acceptable without interfering the spirit of the strike.
  2. Advise patients to submit request for repeat prescription early. We must be prepared to deal with Emergency requests in the usual manner.
  3. Reassure patients that GP surgery will be open and staffed for urgent cases.
  4. Pharmacists are open in the usual manner to deal with minor ailments and other services.
