The purpose of the NHS Emergency Repeat Medicine service is to facilitate appropriate access to repeat medication during OOHs, enabling patients to access an urgent supply of their regular prescription medicines when appropriate.

The service may be needed because the patient has run out of a medicine, or because they have lost or damaged their medicines, their GP or usual pharmacy may be closed, and they are unable to obtain a prescription before they need to take their next dose.

Service is available 6.30pm to 8.00 am on weekdays and from Friday 6.30pm – Monday 8.00am and bank holidays.
