Emergency Medicine Supply

Need a emergency supply?

Running out of your medication or unable to collect your prescription because your GP is closed? These are problems patients bring to us quite often, particularly after 6.00pm and at weekends and Public Holidays.

Your regular Murrays pharmacy may be able to help - just give them a call or drop in with the box of medication that you are about to run out of or a recent list of your repeat medication. The pharmacist will assess the nature of the emergency and use their professional judgement to advise you on what can be done to help.

This may mean being able to supply you with a small quantity of your regular medication to keep you going until your surgery re-opens, or it may mean signposting you to other 'out of hours' service providers.

Whatever the emergency, speak to your local Murrays Pharmacist!....Whatever the emergency, contact your local Murrays Pharmacy!
