When attending an outpatient appointment you may need urgent changes or additions to your medication; if this is the case a prescription will be issued for dispensing by the pharmacy dispensary. If the changes are not urgent then the hospital doctor will write to your GP suggesting an alteration; you should collect your new prescription from the GP two weeks after your appointment.
Please note that our dispensaries can only dispense items prescribed on a hospital prescription note. If your doctor gives you a small green (FP10HP) prescription you will need to take this to any community pharmacy.
All prescriptions issued in outpatients are chargeable, unless you are exempt, at the current rate set by the government. Please bring enough money with you to cover any prescription charge, or your proof of exemption, when you attend an outpatient clinic. Our staff will be happy to advise you on pre payment certificates or exemption guidelines.
If you attend the hospital for a day surgery procedure, or short stay surgical procedure, which does not involve an overnight stay in hospital, any prescription issued is chargeable as above.
The pharmacy is able to accept payment by credit / debit card.
