Getting a prescription
If you're given a prescription at your hospital visit, you must bring it to us to collect your medicines. You can't get GP prescriptions from us.
We are in the corridor between the Outpatients Department and The Parade entrance of the General Hospital.
You don't need to pay for medicines, unless you have a private prescription.
Getting more medicines
You will get 1 month's supply from us and you will need to go to your GP for more.
We cannot dispense normal prescriptions written by GPs.
Hospital only medicines
If you can only get your medicine from us, we will give you up to 3 months' supply.
You must order more from your consultant's secretary. This must be done at least 7 days before you need them. You can then collect these from us.
