Visitors/ Temporary Residents and Medication requests

If you are visiting the area and require a supply of your usual medication, it is not usually necessary for you to register with the local GP surgery. Please see the information below.


Scottish residents

Report to any Community Pharmacy in Scotland. An emergency supply may be issued for up to 30 days duration at the Pharmacist’s discretion. The Pharmacist may ask your permission to access your prescription details electronically.  Alternatively, the Pharmacist may ask YOU to contact your regular GP surgery to request a prescription be scanned and emailed to the Community Pharmacy. There will be no charge for this service.

 


UK residents out with Scotland (i.e. ordinarily resident in England, Wales or Ireland)

Report to any Community Pharmacy in Scotland and present a prescription from your regular GP surgery. If you do not already have a prescription, please contact your regular GP surgery and request that this is sent via the postal service to you, this may be at your expense. If a supply is required urgently (and you do not already have a prescription), the Pharmacist may ask YOU to contact your regular GP surgery to request a prescription be scanned and emailed to the Community Pharmacy. The ‘physical’ prescription (paper copy) must still be sent to the Community Pharmacy. The prescription charge will be in line with what you normally pay at home.

If a prescription is not available, an emergency supply may still be issued for up to 30 days at the Pharmacist’s discretion. You will be charged for the actual cost of the medicine (be aware that some medicines cost a lot more than the prescription charge you normally pay) plus the Community Pharmacy dispensing fee plus 20% VAT.

 


EEA & Swiss residents (out with UK) 

Report to any Community Pharmacy in Scotland. An emergency supply may be issued for up to 30 days at the Pharmacist’s discretion. There will be a charge at the Community Pharmacy for the prescribed item.

 


Residents out with the EEA 

You must register with the local GP surgery. You will need to wait for an available GP appointment and a prescription may be issued at the GP’s discretion.
