Repeat Prescriptions issued by 111
If you contact 111 when the surgery is closed to request repeat medication you may end up paying more for your medication. If you contact 111 for your medication you will be directed to a community pharmacy who will issue you with a 5 day supply. You will still need to pay the full prescription charge (unless you are exempt). You will be asked to contact your GP surgery on the next working day to request your regular prescription. When you take this to the pharmacy you will have to pay another full prescription charge. To prevent this happening, please make sure that you request your repeat medication in plenty of time before you run out.
