Patients preparing for travel in the UK
Posted on 20 Apr 2021
As travel restrictions ease, patients may be preparing for travel to UK holiday locations. Please remind your patients to organise ordering medications in advance, to avoid running out whilst on holiday. To maintain continuity of care on holiday, utilising telephone and online consultations, patients should be advised to contact their own GP in the first instance. If a prescription is required, please send it via Electronic Prescription Service. Practices can also refer to the Community Pharmacist Consultation Service, for minor illness and urgent repeats. If the patient requires a face to face appointment, they can still attend a nearby GP via Temporary Registration.
