Urgent repeat medicines

Doncaster CCG commissions a community pharmacy service for urgent repeat medicines.

The purpose of this service is to ensure that patients can access an urgent supply of regular prescription medicines when unable to obtain a prescription before the next dose is due, if for example, you have run out of a medicine, lost or damaged your medicines, or left home without them. The aim of this service is to relieve pressure on urgent and emergency care services.
