If you are a visitor to the UK, you may be able to get an emergency supply of medicine from a pharmacist.
In addition to this, the nurses may not be able to provide an emergency supply of medication if the prescription or medication is written in a language they can’t understand.
You must take responsibility to ensure you have enough medication to last you through weekends and bank holidays and requested in good time from your own GP practice.
Under NHS England guidance, if you or anyone in your household has developed a high temperature or new continuous cough, please self-isolate and do not come in to the GP practice. Click here for more information.
