Where are we?

What happens when you bring your prescription to the pharmacy?

When you come to the pharmacy we will need to:

  1. Confirm your details eg surname, first name and date of birth
  2. Ask you specific questions, for example to find out if you suffer from asthma or breathing difficulties, or take beta-blockers
  3. Check whether you have to pay or are exempt from prescription charges. If you are exempt, you will need to provide proof that you are exempt every time you collect a prescription.
