Last chance to order your repeat prescriptions and give yourself the gift of good health this Christmas
Christmas can be a busy time, you’ve probably got the presents, decorated the tree and got the food – but have you ordered your repeat prescriptions?
Tomorrow is the last day to make sure that you’ve ordered any repeat prescriptions you need over the bank holidays. GP practices across Bradford District and Craven will close on Friday 22 December and reopen on Wednesday 27 December, so make sure you don’t run out of medicines. GP practices often need two to three working days to process repeat prescription requests, making Wednesday 20 December the last day to get repeat prescriptions ordered in time. Although some GP services will be available over the festive period, this is to help emergency services and not for routine appointments, most practices will be closed.
The three local Bradford District and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are also reminding people that GP practices will also be closed on Monday 1 January, so people will also need to make sure that they have enough medicines to last until the first week of 2018.
