Don’t forget to add your repeat prescription to your Christmas shopping list
GPs across Bradford district and Craven are reminding patients to remember to order their repeat prescriptions in the Christmas rush.
GP practices and most pharmacies are closed during the Christmas and New Year bank holidays and although practices will only be closed for three days, it might be more difficult to get medications unless people plan ahead. As repeat prescriptions require 48 hours’ notice, the last day these can be ordered before Christmas is Thursday 20 December 2018.
Although some GP services will be available over the festive bank holidays, this is to help emergency services and not for routine appointments; most practices will be closed.
Bradford District and Craven clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) are also reminding people that GP practices will be closed on Tuesday 1 January, so people will also need to make sure they have enough medicines to last into the New Year.
