Important - If you require medical attention during times of closure, please telephone 111 and you will be connected to NHS24. In an emergency, please dial 999.
The NHS Chronic Medication Service (CMS) can help you manage your medicine through your local pharmacist while your doctor continues to provide your medical care. You can choose which pharmacy to use but can only register with one pharmacy at a time.

A serial prescription will be issued for 6-12 months which lets you pick up items directly from your regular pharmacy at agreed time intervals, normally every 2 months. You won’t need to visit/call your GP surgery to order or pick up your prescription during this period.
Each time you collect your prescription, your pharmacist will inform your doctor.
Patients registered for MCR will still be recalled for an annual medication review (see Medication Reviews for further information).
Please remember, however, that your doctor can stop or change your serial prescription at any time. If this happens:
Please contact your pharmacy of choice if you wish to find out more or register for this service.
