Acute prescriptions may be ordered by phone, by fax or in person. It is not
possible to order acute prescriptions through Emis Access.
On the patient’s instruction acute prescriptions can be collected on their behalf by
one of the local pharmacies (all prescriptions should be in a sealed envelope when
handed over to the pharmacy runner)
Prescriptions will only be posted out to patients in exceptional circumstances.
Prescriptions will not be "telephoned through" to pharmacies.
